Org/terms 38 Interferometry System Characteristics Beam Walkoff PMIs are largely insensitive to small target mirror tip-andtilt motion due to the retroreflector in the interferometer. Small mirror tip-and-tilt motions do lead to lateral displacements between measurement and reference arms in PMIs. This lateral displacement, or beam walkoff, reduces the achievable fringe contrast because a smaller overlapping zone is created that generates the interference signal. The amount of walkoff scales based on the distance zn between the interferometer and the target.

Depending on the application, different processing techniques can be used to obtain the phase information. Homodyne interferometers typically employ phase quadrature algorithms to extract the phase. Heterodyne interferometers typically use lock-in detection or discrete Fourier transform methods. Time interval analysis can be used for both homodyne and heterodyne systems. Homodyne interferometers have DC-level detection bandwidths, while heterodyne interferometers have frequencymodulated signals at 1 MHz or greater.

Two methods to determine directional sensitivity are: 1. Generate quadrature signals with a known phase shift, a so-called phase quadrature measurement. This is the common method for most commercial systems. Phase quadrature measurements can be made mostly insensitive to stray light because both signals are equally affected. 2. Implement amplitude demodulation. This is achieved by modulating the laser intensity with a known carrier frequency and demodulating with respect to the carrier frequency.
