Miniature Plane-Mirror Interferometer
Product Announcement from Piezosystem Jena, Inc.
Piezosystem Jena's SP-Series miniature plane-mirror interferometers are precision length-measurement instruments designed for incorporation into customer-supplied systems, and are readily adapted to suit a wide variety of experimental setups and tasks.
Their miniaturized sensor head allows their employment as permanently installed metrological systems. Planar mirrors or other optical quality reflective surfaces may be employed as reflectors on their translating arms, and may be angularly misaligned by as much as several minutes of arc with respect to the laser beam without adversely affecting their operation.
The beam from their laser light source is transmitted to their sensor head by a fiber optic cable.Their miniature interferometer converts motions of their planar mirror along the beam axis into optical interference signals that are transmitted to their optoelectronic signal processing/power supply unit for processing and output as lengths.
Instrument operation and display of measurement results may be via either a separate keypad/display unit or a PC running an optional software package.
