Abstract

A photoelectric detection scheme for a three-beam interferometer is described. The technique provides an ac measurement signal and improved sensitivity. This method makes use of a relative oscillating motion between the fringes and a slit placed in the interference pattern to produce measurement signals. Certain observations on the form of interference fringes in three-beam interference are also included.
