Fizeau Interferometers

AccuFiz UV, Visible, and NIR

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. 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.

Full range and fully developed accessories selection

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. The range provides the right options for a wide range of applications and budgets.

High resolution camera option

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.

Isolate plane-parallel surfaces

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.

Rigid for best results, anywhere

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.

Accurate lateral resolution

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.

high resolution fizeau interferometer, laser interferometer, AccuFizThe 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.

fizeau interferometer, short coherence, laser interferometer, AccuFizPlane-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 interference fringes, making measurement extremely difficult or impossible.

Problem solved

Getting good measurements with plane-parallel test pieces becomes easy and quick with our optional Surface Isolation Source. Order SIS if you need this unusual capability.

AccuFiz Measurement System for 600mm Optics, including (right to left): The AccuFiz 100mm aperture interferometer, 100-600mm Aperture Converter, Phase Shifting Tip/Tilt Mount and Rotational Tip/Tilt Mount.

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.

AccuFiz Infra-Red Wavelength Fizeau Interferometers

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.

  • AccuFiz LWIR, operating at 10.6 μm
  • AccuFiz DBIR, operating at both 3.8 μm and 10.6 µm sources, for cost-effectiveness and flexibility.

Short Coherence Laser Interferometers

FizCam dynamic short coherence laser interferometers are designed for challenging measurements such as remote cavities, simultaneous measurement of multiple glass surfaces. They also perform measurements in environmental testing chambers and provide an analysis of moving parts. With acquisition time under 1 millisecond and a completely on-axis design, FizCam systems provide extremely accurate measurement in a lab or in noisy environments, such as production floors and cleanrooms.
