AbstractThe multiple-beam interferometer described here is intended to measure the thickness of evaporated films whose thickness is in the order of 1000 A. The accuracy of these measurements is ± 2%. The multiple-beam principle is outlined followed by a consideration of the design steps including choice of air wedge angle and thickness, microscope objective, degree of collimation. The completed interferometer is described with proposed improvements.
