Grating is an important sensor widely used in CNC machine or equipment for length measurement with high precision. Special line scales with dense and micro lines are also widely used for the calibration of length measurement instrument. All the pitches of grating and spaces of dense lines of line scale are needed to be calibrated for a good measurement application. General methods for measurement of dense and micro lines include digital image processing method by CCD Microscope or line scanning method by AFM or SEM, and laser distraction method. There are some disadvantages to measure a long length grating with high precision and efficiently in these methods. A dynamic method based on Photoelectric Microscope is introduced, the lines of grating to be measured is moving uniformly when measuring, and the working distance is a bigger 65mm, the zoom of objective is low 10X. The principle of this dynamic method is discussed and the distortion of line signal is analyzed. The way to decrease the affection caused by distortion of line signal is also described. A special glass grating line scale with length 10mm, space 10μm and width 5μm is measured to verify the method. The measurement result and the uncertainty analysis demonstrate the expand measurement uncertainty (k=2) is less than 0.1μm.
