Frequency-scanning interferometer with non-specular reference surface

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #7057742.

A frequency-scanning interferometer is modified to include a diffuse reference surface. An illuminating system produces an expanding measuring beam, portions of which reflect from a test object surface and the diffuse reference surface on converging paths to an imaging system. Interference patterns between overlapping images of the object and reference surfaces are generated at a plurality of frequencies for measuring the object surface with respect to the reference surface.
