Abstract
Light being scattered back from external surfaces or optical components can affect the sensitivity of optical measurement systems such as interferometers. By modulating the optical path length in front of a critical optical component the noise contributions due to the scattered light can be shifted out of the frequency band of interest. An opto-mechanical phase shifter has been designed for this purpose and noise reduction has been demonstrated.
