Abstract
The internal shape and alignment of accelerator discs is crucial for efficient collider operation in the possible future compact linear collider. We applied a custom made and calibrated Fourier domain short coherence interferometer to measure the height of 40 and 60 μm machined steps on a copper disc in our laboratory. The step heights were determined to be: (43.0 ± 3.1) μm and (46.5 ± 3.2) μm for the 40 μm nominal step, and (46.6 ± 3.6) μm for the 60 μm nominal step. The errors represent 95% confidence level uncertainties and include uncertainty contributions from the calibration, refractive index of air, cosine error, and surface roughness. The step heights were validated by a calibrated contact stylus profilometer which resulted into (44.5 ± 0.8) μm and (45.9 ± 1.0) μm for the 40 μm nominal step, and (45.5 ± 1.7) μm for the 60 μm nominal step at 95% confidence level. The results show feasibility for noncontacting absolute shape and step height characterization with micrometer-level accuracy. This instrument is a first step towards a quality assurance tester for the accelerating structures of the compact linear collider.
