Abstract
We have developed a computer-controlled low-coherence interferometer system with precise translation stages which is useful in practice for simultaneous measurement of the refractive index and the thickness of transparent plates. Both phase and group indices can be determined automatically in a wide thickness range of 20μm to a few mm. The measurement accuracy of <1% is achieved even when the sample is as thin as 20μm. For the sample of a few hundreds μm or more, the measurement time is 3 minutes with the accuracy of ≦0.2%.
