Abstract
The calibration of the novel laser heterodyne interferometry system for measurement of vibrations of small amplitude in the audible frequency range is described. A frequency-shifted reference beam is compared with an unshifted test beam that is phase modulated by a vibrating surface. Vibration displacements down 10 nm in the frequency range from 150 Hz to 10 KHz are measured. The system is ideally suited for biological movement analysis, for example, the acoustic emission evaluation from human cochlea excited by electrical stimuli.
