We propose a phase-shifting interferometer that uses both
phase-locked and photothermal modulating techniques. In this
interferometer the measurement accuracy is not affected by the
intensity modulation that usually appears in current
modulation. The surface profile of a diamond-turned aluminum disk
was measured; the rms repeatability obtained was λ/460.
