Abstract

The article considers the possibility of controlling the quality of a conducting surface using a Michelson interferometer, in which the information carrier is surface plasmon-polaritons (a type of surface electromagnetic waves) of the terahertz range. It is shown that using such an interferometer, it is possible both to control the uniformity of the dielectric coating on the surface of a metal product, and to detect inhomogeneities on the controlled surface, as well as to evaluate their geometric and optical characteristics.
