AccuFiz Fizeau interferometers offer an unmatched combination of performance, quality and value in optical metrology. They produce accurate, repeatable interferometric measurements of surface shape, radius of curvature and transmitted wavefront quality, through using a laser light source which reflects off a reference surface and a test surface to create an interference pattern of the two light beams. In a Fizeau interferometer, the laser beam's light waves function as the measuring stick used to plot surface variations. Interferometric measurements are extremely sensitive and precise in plotting surface shape changes, and modern metrology techniques are able to plot pixel to pixel height differences at levels that are a tiny fraction of the wavelength.
AccuFiz Fizeau laser interferometers fit well in confined lab spaces. No more back-breaking dead lifts! The compact, lightweight design is extremely rigid for high stability in any orientation or environment.
Order these Fizeau interferometers in wavelengths from 355 nm through 1.064 µm. The standard product has apertures from 33 mm to 800 mm, and configures both horizontally and vertically with mounting. 4D's mature line of product offerings and accessories provide the right options for a wide range of applications and budgets.
The optional 6 megapixel, high resolution camera captures the highest slopes of any commercial interferometer. With high slope range capability, you can have optical metrology of aspheres, freeform optics and highly aberrated elements.
One common shortcoming of the long-coherence laser in Fizeaus is the inability to measure plane parallel surfaces. The Surface Isolation Source (SIS) option adds the ability to measure plane-parallel optics without coatings or back-surface treatments. It eliminates unwanted second-surface reflections. Quantify shape, optical thickness, transmitted wavefront error, and homogeneity on optics as thin as 300 µm.
Four inch and six inch apertures are our most common customer selections. In production environments or the lab, AccuFiz Fizeau interferometers provide industry-leading repeatability.
Maximum stability is essential for optical metrology, and these interferometers will operate successfully in any orientation or environment. The AccuFiz Fizeau's compact, lightweight design is extremely rigid.
No more recalibrating lateral dimensions when you zoom. Only AccuFiz includes Smart Zoom™ to ensure accurate lateral resolution over the entire 1X–10X zoom range.
The AccuFiz 6MP laser interferometer provides the highest available resolution for measuring steep slopes, aspheric surfaces and small diameter optics. Its 2400 x 2400 pixel sensor doubles the measurable spatial frequency range and quadruples the sampling capability of standard Fizeau interferometers.
Plane-parallel optics are transparent components with parallel faces, or systems with two or more parallel surfaces. Measuring plane-parallel optics with a laser interferometer can be challenging, as the parallel surfaces can all contribute unintended interference, making measurement extremely difficult or impossible.
Getting good measurements with plane-parallel test pieces becomes easy and quick with our optional Surface Isolation Source. Order SIS with your AccuFiz Fizeau Interferometer if you need this unusual capability.
High performance aperture converters and mounts let you leverage the performance of a standard AccuFiz to measure optics up to 800mm in diameter. Kinematic mounting allows quick removal of the AccuFiz for stand-alone operation. Better yet, you can return it to the aperture converter with no need for re-alignment. 4D Fizeau Interferometer aperture converters embody numerous conveniences and technological improvements to form a superior beam-expander system, easy and convenient, without a loss in performance.
Our IR Fizeau interferometers provide consistently high performance, quality and value for accurate, repeatable measurement at infrared wavelengths. Laser sources wavelengths from 1.55 µm through 10.6 µm enable measurement of IR components and systems at their functional wavelength, as well as measurement of rough polished optics. Internal optics and accessories to match.
Near Infra-Red (NIR) wavelengths are available as well, including 1.053 and 1.064 µm.
