Phase-referenced interferometer with subwavelength and subhertz sensitivity


Journal Article

A low coherence phase-referenced interferometer (PRI) that can be used to measure slow and small movements with the objective of studying subcellular dynamics was presented. The use of low coherence light in the interferometer provides depth resolution and can be used for tomographic imaging. A motional PRI achieved complete insensitivity to interferometer mechanical jitter by the simultaneous use of a cw 775-nm laser and a low coherence light source at 1550nm.
