Method and device for measuring motion error of linear stage
Measurement of motion errors of a linear stage is performed to enable accurate measurement of motion errors in linear directions and a rotational direction in the linear stage using a diffraction grating. A first beam splitter splits a laser beam emitted from a light emitting unit. A first measurement unit measures a unidirectional linear motion error of the linear stage using one laser beam component split by the first beam splitter and a second measurement unit measures an angular motion error and another unidirectional linear motion of the linear stage error using a diffracted beam component obtained by diffracting another laser beam component split by the first beam splitter through the diffraction grating. A third measurement unit circularly polarizes the beam component diffracted through the diffraction grating to measure a third unidirectional linear motion error of the linear stage.
