We propose a new signal detection method for optical encoders. Two diffraction gratings whose periods are slightly different from eachother are irradiated by a collimated beam to make an interference fringe. This encoder system has a simple structure while the performance is not influenced by the wavelength change, theoretically. A quasi sine curve of period 0.5 micrometers was detected by a fundamental experiment.
