Abstract
We describe an optical measurement technique based on Carrier Frequency Interferometry (CFI) that allows to measure wavefront deformation of coated optics with high accuracy. The sensitivity of the method is considerably greater than phase shifting interferometry. The limits of validity of the Stoney equation in calculating stress in thin films is assessed using CFI. The evolution of stress in Ta2O5 films deposited by ion beam sputtering is also evaluated.
