Photonics Hub Online Seminar: Basics of Measuring Techniques Part II - Interferometry

Light can be used in many ways, as an information carrier in metrology, as a tool in material processing or as a data carrier in information technology. The advantage of using light is to realize non-contact measuring methods, i.e. non-destructive testing, which also works very fast for 2d or even 3d problems. Photonics Hub has launched an online seminar series regarding optical measurement techniques. We want to discuss how various optical instruments like interferometers or microscopes work for example to operate 3d surface measurements. Also you are not a specialist involved in developing or building measurement systems, to understand optical measurement systems ensures that you will be able to define the right system to meet your company’s current or future needs.

The physical background as well as the mode of operation of the needed optical components was explained in the first seminar. This second seminar will explain the technique of interferometry as well as interferometer types:


  • Basics of interference
  • Multi beam interference
  • Principles of interferometers
    • Fizeau interferometer
    • Twyman-Green interferometer
    • Mirau interferometer
    • Heterodyne Interferometer

The final Photonics Hub Online Seminars of this series will explain the technique of interferometry  as well as interferometer types and finally the state of the art of 3d-measument technologies.

In our Photonics Hub Online Seminars you can easily participate via internet our knowledge courses held by professional speakers from industry, business or university.
The Photonics Hub Online Courses are provided via the edudip-next platform.

The starting time is 5:30 pm (CEST, UTC+2).

After succesful registration and payment we will send you a personalised link to registrate on the edudip-next platform for our Photonics Hub Online Seminar.
The platfrom provides a chat function for questions during the online seminar.  A Webcam and microphone also can be used for communication, but isn't necessary to participate.


Our Photonics Hub Online Seminars adress all people, who cannot participate in our residential courses or want to benefit in participating from anywhere by internet.
Contentually this online seminar gives the participants a starting point to learn about the fundamental properties and basics of optics that allow the 3d measuring of surfaces.
You can participate this online seminar at any kind of knowledge stage after school and learn more about the basic knowledge of optics.
