HP Laser Interferometer Measurement System[HP5529A] is one of the most powerful equipment for measurement of the motion accuracy. The straightness measurement system of the HP5529A is composed of wollastone prism and reflector. In this system, straightness error is measured by relative lateral motion between prism and reflector. But rotating motion of prism or reflector as moving optic causes not real straightness error but additive straightness error. Especially unwanted straightness error as this becomes very large when reflector is used as moving optic and an interval between reflector and prism is distant. In this paper, the compensation method is proposed for removing additive error and experiment is carried out for theoretical verification.
