Abstract

When the transmitted beams from a Fizeau interferometer are reflected back through the instrument, a new system of fringes is observed in which the intensity distribution undergoes a periodic modulation as the separation of the plates is changed. Accurate measurements are possible with the help of these fringes, using a photometric setting criterion. The mode of formation of these fringes, as well as the theoretical intensity distribution in them under various conditions, is discussed.
