Abstract:

OPTRA PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SMALL LASER-BASED NON-CONTACTING INSTRUMENT FOR MEASURING THE THREE CARTESIAN COMPONENTS OF THE DISPLACEMENT OF A SURFACE AT A SINGLE POINT OF OBSERVATION. THE TARGETED MEASUREMENT SENSITIVITY IS IN THE 1 TO 10 NANOMETER RANGE, WITH A MEASUREMENT BANDWIDTH OF 1 MHZ. THE INSTRUMENT USES AN INEXPENSIVE BUT POWERFUL LASER DIODE, AND WILL BE DESIGNED TO BE MANUFACTURED AT A LOW ENOUGH COST TO GIVE IT A VERY COMPETITIVE POSITION IN THE MARKET. IF POSSIBLE, ALL OF THE ELECTRONICS WILL BE ON PLUG-IN CARDS FOR A PC/386 COMPUTER WHICH WILL BE USED FOR DATA LOGGING, PROCESSING AND DISPLAY, AS WELL AS FOR OVERALL CONTROL OF THE MEASUREMENT.
