Embodiments of the present disclosure provide systems and methods for constructing a profile of sample object. Briefly described, in architecture, one embodiment of the system, among others, can be implemented as follows. An interferometer device is used to collect interference images of a sample object at a sequence of angles around the sample object. Accordingly, a controller device rotates the sample object to enable acquisition of the interference images; and a projection generator produces projections of the sample object from the interference images at the sequence of angles. Further, a tomographic device constructs the profile of the optical device from the projections of the interference images. The profile is capable of characterizing small index variations of less than 1x10?4. Other systems and methods are also included.
