Abstract
The measurement of surface profiles by use of the interference pattern of partially coherent light is described. A method based on the modulation the optical path lengths of the beams in the reference arm of an interferometer has been proposed for recording differential interferograms. A profilometer implementing this approach has been developed. Measuring results on the profiles of metal surfaces are provided. As an extension of this technique, a new fast method for measuring the depth of a surface profile has been proposed. The method relies on the polyzonal interference patterns of the partially coherent light. Experimental verification has been carried out, the results are provided.
