One good general reference for capacitance micrometers is:

/Microdisplacement Transducers/ by P.H. Sydenham, Journal of Physics E, 
Scientific Instruments, Vol 5, p721-33, 1972. 

It seems that capacitance micrometers can be 3 orders of magnitude more 
sensitive than I stated i.e. they can detect displacements of about 1E-14 m.
This compares well with interferometry which can detect displacements of 
around 1E-10 m.
