Abstract

A relatively simple, inexpensive, and compact Fizeau wavemeter is described that provides an accuracy of better than 1 part in 106 across the visible spectrum. The design is a variant of that initially proposed by Gardner and employs a novel geometry to eliminate wavelength measurement errors due to changes in wave front curvature.
