Abstract
One of the most important factor in influencing interferometer measurement accuracy is coherent noise .To improve measurement accuracy, the coherent noise of interferometric system should be reduced effectively. A new method of generating virtually extended source is described in this paper, which can suppress coherent noise effectively and verified by experiment. Experiments of comparing with traditional point source show that the virtually extended source can suppress coherent noise effectively and preserve the fringe contrast. There is no Newton rings in the phase map in evidence. The experiments show the wedge angle to be chosen between 8 minutes and 17minutes for a better results. The final measurement about surface profile show the method with virtually extended source has lower RMS value.
