An Interferometer for Direct Recording of Refractive Index Distributions

  • Published 2012


The well established principle of division of amplitude in two-beam interference is used to locate constant optical thicknesses in an experiment where the refractive index is a continuously varying function of position. This is applied to the experimental situation of determining the temperature distribution around a plane heat source in a transparent… (More)
