Fizeau Interferometers

AccuFiz UV, Visible, and NIR

AccuFiz laser interferometers offer an unmatched combination of performance, quality and value, for accurate, repeatable measurement of surface shape and transmitted wavefront quality. The AccuFiz is extremely easy to use in confined lab spaces. Its compact, lightweight design is extremely rigid for maximum stability in any orientation or environment.

Wavelengths from 355 nm through 1.064 µm, apertures from 33 to 800 mm, and horizontal and vertical mounting configurations, providing 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. Measure aspheres, freeform optics and highly aberrated elements.

The optional Surface Isolation Source (SIS) adds the ability to measure plane-parallel optics without coatings or back-surface treatments to eliminate unwanted reflections. Quantify shape optical thickness, transmitted wavefront error and homogeneity on optics as thin as 300 µm.

In production environments as well as in the lab the AccuFiz provides industry leading repeatability. 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.

large aperture fizeau interferometer, laser interferometer, AccuFizA compact, high performance aperture converters produce collimated test beams from 300 to 800 mm diameter. The converters can be used in horizontal or look-down measurement configurations. Kinematic mounting makes it possible to quickly remove the AccuFiz for stand-alone operation, then to return it to the aperture converter with no need for re-alignment.

AccuFiz IR Wavelength Interferometers

AccuFiz IR laser interferometers provide the performance, quality and value found in AccuFiz visible systems for accurate, repeatable measurement at infrared wavelengths. 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.

Near IR wavelengths are available as well, including 1.053 and 1.064 µm.

  • AccuFiz SWIR, operating at 1.55 µm
  • AccuFiz MWIR, operating at 3.8 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.

FizCam Short Coherence Laser Interferometers

FizCam dynamic short coherence laser interferometers enable challenging measurements such as remote cavities, simultaneous measurement of multiple glass surfaces, measurements in environmental testing chambers and analysis of moving parts. With acquisition time of 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.
