ABSTRACT
Describes the design of a modular differential interference contrast microscope combined with laser interferometry to detect nanometer-scale displacements of microscopic beads with a root mean square noise less than 0.4 nanometer. Instrumentation design and setup; Detection sensitivity; Disadvantage of using the system as a displacement detector.
