Abstract : The patent provides a interferometer stabilization technique that can be implemented with conventional integrated circuit technology. It provides a system for eliminating complex mechanical and temperature control in interferometer apparatus. It provides a technique for stabilizing interferometers over long periods of time without the need for monitoring. It provides a digital stabilization system which controls surface parallelism with increased accuracy and high reliability. It provides improved timing and control of interferometer elements for aligning optical surfaces for optimal performance.
