Recently a new signal processing algorithm for white light interferometry was presented. In this paper, the proposed signal processing algorithm was applied for absolute temperature measurement using white light interferometry. Stability testing and absolute temperature measurement were demonstrated. Stability test demonstrated the feasibility of absolute temperature measurement with an accuracy of 0.015 fringe. The test also showed that the absolute temperature measurement system using white light interferometry is capable of obtaining the theoretical minimum detectable change (0.0005 fringe), which is consistent with the performance predicted by the proposed signal processing algorithm.
