Abstract

By analyzing the spectral domain’s phase information, one can use spectrally resolved white-light interferometry (SRWLI) to obtain the profile with a single frame of an interferogram. We present here a two-dimensional (2D) SRWLI method that can be applied to measure narrow rectangle areas. A frequency comb is produced by using a Fabry–Perot (F-P) etalon to filter the broadband source. With the filtered frequency comb illumination, the interference patterns under adjacent wavelengths would be separated by a little distance, which enables us to obtain a 2D profile with a small width. The experimental details of measurement on a step sample are discussed in this paper.
