Abstract

This paper describes a pressure-scanned three-pass Fabry-Perot interferometer. The design considerations relating plate reflectivity and desired transmission and contrast are presented together with the details of the beam positioning in the retroreflectors. Actual performance of the instrument is compared with predicted performance for transmission and contrast. A contrast of 1.4 × 108 and transmission of 29% were achieved.
