ABSTRACT
We describe a phase shifting interferometer which is based on a frequency-tunable diode laser in a Littrow configuration and is suitable for operation in ultrahigh vacuum. A wave front distortion measurement of a thin glass plate with a repeatability of λ/1000 is presented. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
