D-312LD 12 INCH APERTURE DIGITAL PLANO INTERFEROMETER
The 12" Aperture Digital Plano Interferometer D-312L is an optical measuring instrument used as a simple and efficient means for measuring the flatness of 12-inch diameter reflective surfaces and providing a permanent record of the observed fringe pattern. There is no physical contact between the master reference and the surface to be measured. This feature eliminates the use of costly optical flats that must be replaced when their surface is worn. Its simplicity of operation allows accurate measurements to be made by non-technical personnel.
A special turret assembly permits rapid indexing for a standard eyepiece, a fringe splitter or the use of a high-resoluton digital camera. The fringe splitter is a 15X telescope and filar eyepiece combination that is used as an aid to perform accurate measurements to fractions of fringes. The high-resolution Digital Camera provides a convenient means for obtaining a permanent record of the observed fringe pattern.
With this instrument there is no physical contact between the master reference and the surface to be measured thus eliminating the use of costly optical flats that must be replaced when worn.
- Flatness measurements to 0.000 001 inch
- Digital high resolution digital camera provides permanent records
- Costly physical contact eliminated
- Certification of accuracy traceable to NIST
