A white-light microscopy interferometer was developed for measurement of the 3D profile and roughness.10X, 20X and 50X Mirau interference microscope objectives with the numerical aperture of 0.3, 0.4 and 0.55 were designed, manufactured and then provided as the accessories. Thickness deviation between beam splitter plate and reference mirror plate as well as the numerical aperture will both affect the contrast of interference fringe, according to optical modeling and image evaluation. The former would generate dispersion and then decrease the fringe contrast, while the latter would not produce dispersion separately but impact the amount of dispersion when thickness deviation exists, and their influence on fringe contrast was based on the expression of white-light interference intensity. Simulations for interference fringes from Mirau interference microscope objectives with different NA and thickness deviation were implemented, demonstrated that the fringe contrast will be falling with NA and thickness deviation increasing. A standard step with the nominal step value of 110 nm was used to calibrate the white-light microscopy interferometer, showing that less than1nm deviation can be reached.
