Description

Recent progress in tracker alignment R&D at Michigan will be reported. Dual-laser frequency scanning interferometery (FSI) has proven to work well in reducing systematic uncertainties due to temperature fluctuations which limit single-laser FSI measurements under realistic detector conditions. Results of several recent tests carried out to cross-check the precision of the dual-laser method will be presented. Exploratory work to miniaturize the FSI optical components will also be discussed.
