Abstract
A low-coherence Linnik interference microscope using high numerical aperture optics has been constructed. The system uses a tungsten halogen lamp and a Koehler illumination, with separate control over field and aperture stops, so that experiments can be conducted with a range of different geometric phase which is achieved by using a polarizing beam splitter, a quarter wave plate and a rotating polarizer. Image information is extracted from the visibility of the fringes, and the position of the visibility peak along the scanning axis, yielding the height of the test surface at the corresponding points.
