Looking for accurate distance sensor

Looking for accurate distance sensor

Looking for accurate distance sensor

I'm looking for a high accurate distance sensor to detect very low movements. (0.1 to 200 micrometer).
It can be a light sensor or anything eles.
I want it to measuring very low material deflections.
Do u have any idea?

RE: Looking for accurate distance sensor

The auttocube sensors are looks good, but they are too big.
Do u khow smaller one?
Something like a board module?

RE: Looking for accurate distance sensor

IR, the page you link to shows just the (large) control box, not the (small) sensor that's attached to it... perhaps that's the confusion?
