Abstract
The vertical atmospheric sounding interferometer is based on the classical Michelson Interferometer mechanics. To keep the uniformity of the speed and the alignment of the movable plane mirror, it introduces the referential optical path. As the metrological standard, it is very important to get high-quality referential signals. Because of the complexity of the interference system, the referential signals will degenerate when arriving at the laser detectors. In this paper, three factors that impact the quality of the referential signals and countermeasures are presented. Firstly because the laser speckle is not ideally proportioned and the laser beam is not ideally vertically reflected by the movable mirror, the laser speckle swings with the movement of the movable mirror, resulting in the fluctuating of the power radiated on the laser detectors. Secondly, when the initial angle between the fixed mirror and the movable mirror is too large, the modulation depth ripples in a large scale with the small misalignment of the movable mirror. Lastly, the light reflected back to the semiconductor laser will engender impact on the light source. By taking countermeasures, usable, accurate enough referential laser signals are finally acquired.
