Absolute distance metrology using frequency swept lasers
This thesis describes and evaluates two new interferometric distance measurement methods based upon the well known method of Frequency Scanning Interferometry (FSI). These new methods are known as Dynamic FSI and Cascaded FSI.
Dynamic FSI addresses the two problems, commonly seen in previous FSI implementations, of not being able to measure a moving target and having a slow measurement rate. This method measures stationary and moving targets equally well, and can determine the distan...Expand abstract
