Michelson Interferometry (2.9)

Student's Manual The experiment is designed to familiarize students with the Michelson Interferometer and introduce optical components like beam splitters, translation and rotational stages, and lenses to highlight important concepts like wave interference.
Equipment manual T-cube DC servo motor driver
Sample Results Concentric Circular fringes in Michelson Interferometer
Plot in between fringes passed versus rotation angle (degrees)
