Özet

The aim of this study is to develop an interferometric technique to measure micron level clearances occurring in small piston-cylinder arrangements; such as hermetically sealed compressors. A Cartesian model of the piston cylinder arrangement is manufactured and lateral and vertical motions are generated via a step motor, and micrometers, respectively, to simulate the piston motion and the change of clearance during the motion. Experiments are conducted in air and a lubricant. Measurements show the important effect of surface waviness of the mirror and the effect of the motion of the carriage at micron level measurements.
