A schematic diagram of the air-bearing Fabry-Perot interferometer. A hollow stainless-steel cylinder, which is supported by two air bearings, is used to translate one of the Fabry-Perot mirrors. The air bearings provide a nearly frictionless support for the stainless-steel cylinder and, in addition, permit the Fabry-Perot mirror to be precisely linearly translated without small angular misalignments.
