Abstract
The interferometer with illumination of a halogen lamp is characterized, in which the resulting coherence length is only 1.6μm at the center wavelength of 657nm. This sort of ultra-low coherence interferometer is used for simultaneous measurement of refractive index and thickness of sputtered film even when the film thickness is 2μm or less. The measurement is made by a novel coherence-gate reflectance method, to our knowledge, which has an advantage that the measurement time is only 15sec with an error of only 0.3%. Both the refractive index and thickness distributions of SiO2 sputtered film are also presented.
