Abstract
The principle of laser common-path interference profilometry based on the theory of Gaussian beams is analyzed and its measurement equation is deduced. From the measurement equation, the main factors that affect the vertical resolution of the profilometer are discussed. According to the conclusions of the analysis, laser common-path interference profilometry can be used to measure microprofiles of fine surfaces with subnanometer vertical resolution.
