We present a method for shape measurements, which is based on sampling the temporal coherence function of the light using a shear interferometer. In contrast to standard White Light Interferometry our method has low demands regarding the spatial coherence of the light and is robust with respect to exterior disturbances. We sample the coherency function of the light with the help of of a test object with steps of a couple of micrometers. Due to its common path principle the system is intrinsically vibration tolerant.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
