What is the difference between dispersive and Fourier transform spectroscopy?
How do you convert an interferogram to a spectrum?
- The interferogram is converted to a spectrum by Fourier transformation. This requires it to be stored in digital form as a series of values at equal intervals of the path difference between the two beams.
What is phase shifting phase shifting interferometry?
- Fourier-Transform Phase-Shifting Interferometry As surfaces are added to the interferometer cavity, the observed interferogram is a linear superposition of the interferograms from the combinatorial collec- tion of all possible elemental cavities.
What is interpolation in laser interferogram analysis?
- Values of the interferogram at times corresponding to zero crossings of the laser signal are found by interpolation. The result of Fourier transformation is a spectrum of the signal at a series of discrete wavelengths. The range of wavelengths that can be used in the calculation is limited by the separation of the data points in the interferogram.
