ABSTRACT Laser heterodyne interferometer is one kind of nano-metrology systems which has been widely used in industry for high-accuracy displacement measurements. The accuracy of the nano-metrology systems based on the laser heterodyne interferometers can be effectively limited by the periodic nonlinearity. In this paper, we present the nonlinearity modeling of nano-metrology interferometric system using some classical adaptive filters. The adaptive algorithms consist of the least mean squares (LMS), normalized least mean squares (NLMS), and recursive least square (RLS). It is also shown that the RLS algorithm can obtain optimal modeling parameters of nonlinearity.

    ABSTRACT: The nonlinearity of heterodyne interferometers is caused not only by polarization ellipticity or nonorthogonality of the laser beams. The imperfect optical parts can also contribute. Our experiments show that the nonlinearity of heterodyne interferometers can be serious even when perfect optical parts are used. Also it will be shown how to examine and distinguish between the errors experimentally. Moreover, an interesting approach was found to decrease the nonlinearity for heterodyne interferometers.

    ABSTRACT: In this study, the authors investigate theoretically a periodic non-linearity effect and its compensation in a three-longitudinal-mode heterodyne interferometer (TLMI). An analytical formula of the frequency mixing error in the TLMI is obtained based on the Jones calculus taking into account experimental parameters. We find that the non-ideal polarisation states and imperfect alignment of the optical setup play the major role to produce four- and eight-cycle non-linearities. The operation of non-linearity compensation system on the four- and eight-cycle non-linear errors is also presented.

    ABSTRACT: The periodic nonlinearity in nano-metrology systems based on heterodyne interferometers is the most important limitation to the accuracy of displacement measurement. It is mainly produced due to the polarization-mixing and frequency-mixing. In this paper, a new approach based on an ensemble of neural networks for modeling and compensation of nonlinearity in a high-resolution laser heterodyne interferometer is presented. We model the periodic nonlinearity arising from elliptical polarization and non-orthogonality of the laser polarized light based on the neural network approaches, including the multi-layer perceptrons and radial basis function as single neural networks and stacked generalization method as ensemble of neural networks. It is also shown that by using the stacked generalization method, the primary periodic nonlinearity of 1.3 nm is significantly compensated by a factor of 168.
