MIC-1 Laser Interferometer

THE MIC-1 LASER INTERFEROMETER

is the most versatile optical testing device of its kind on the market today. The MIC-1 was designed with human engineering in mind for a range of users from the amateur to the professional test engineer. Its ruggedness and durability has been proven in over 20 years of service. It delivers repeatable and reliable test results every time. One instrument doing the job of many is what makes the MIC-1 your affordable answer.

The MIC-1 eats vibration! You could use it to test optical components and systems on a picnic table. The design integrity of the MIC-1 with the high speed CCD camera allows testing in a high vibration environment, even in a fully lighted room. It is mountable in any physical orientation for maximum flexibility and freedom of use.

APPLICATIONS

The MIC-1 is a universal testing instrument that can be used to test most optical components or systems, including flat and spherical mirrors, test plates, lenses, prisms, telescopes, Cassegrain systems, on-axis and off-axis paraboloids, ellipsoids, reconnaissance cameras, and more. Its uses are as varied as the optical testing problems that you may have.

The MIC-1 has been used to test micro lenses .01 inches in diameter, 60-inch telescopes, and, we think, everything in between.

FEATURES

MIC-1 SYSTEMS

The MIC-1 comes equipped in Standard Projection Mode. Accessories create different modes of operation and can be added at any time. You can switch between systems in just a few minutes.

STANDARD EQUIPMENT

MIC-1 comes complete in Standard Projection Mode with one each of the following: f/5 beam diverger, uncoated (4%) reflectance reference flat, full (94%) reflectance reference flat, and projection lens.

SPECIFICATIONS

Design:

Modified Twyman-Green optical configuration

Accuracy:

1/10 wavelength or better at .6328 microns

Light Source:

Polarized helium neon laser, 2mW at .6328 microns

Overall Size:

16.3"L x 12.1"W x 12.0"H

Weight:

16 pounds

Test Capability:

In its basic testing mode, the MIC-1 (using beam divergers) emits a spherical wave front. The test range is limited only by the f/Nos. of available divergers. Fast focal ratios approaching f/0.56 are available in the form of microscope objectives, but may be less than lambda/10 quality.
