Frequency Scanning Interferometry For High Accuracy

Frequency scanning interferometry uses a tunable laser to provide highly accurate distance measurements. It was first developed by researchers at the University of Oxford who were working on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The system they have developed enables a single measurement device to simultaneously direct multiple laser beams to many targets, measuring each with extreme accuracy.   If you […]
