Abstract
This paper describes a pilot experiment of optimization of a white-light source for a low-coherence interferometry. The white-light source combines the light beams generated with colour LEDs. By modelling of the white light spectra, a contrast of a white light interference fringe could be changed and set to the maximal value. Hereafter, a concept of the light source for the low-coherence interferometry based on high-luminescent LED and single mode optical fibres is presented.The design comes out form a requirement to have an output beam combining a white-light beam and a laser beam. In the case of coaxial white-light and laser beam, the white-light interferometer is precisely combined with an incremental laser interferometer. This combination allows doing online surface diagnostics with high precision. The optimized white light source is designed to be a crucial part of an experimental setup for the surface diagnostics and automatic calibration of gauge blocks.
