Fiber optic phase stepping system for interferometry.


A closed loop phase control system using an all-fiber optical configuration has been developed for use in phase stepping interferometry. This system drives the relative phase of two interfering beams through a sequence of pi/2 rad increments so that the initial relative phase of these beams can be determined. This phase stepping system uses optical fibers to provide spatially uniform phase steps from a flexible, easily aligned optical configuration. In addition, this system uses phase feed back to eliminate phase modulator errors and to compensate for phase drifts caused by environmental disturbances.
