Fig. 1

Fabry-Perto etalon illuminated from a point.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Interference rings recorded (a) in the focal plane of a converging lens and (b) inside the focal plane of the lens (4-mm fused silica solid Fabry-Perot, plate reflectance ≈0.8, He–Ne 632.8-nm source).

Fig. 3

Sets of sources equivalent to multiple reflections for a Fabry-Perot etalon illuminated form a point. (a) Parallel rays from the etalon interfere at a point in the focal plane of the converging lens L2. (b) When the lens L2 is removed the path difference of a pair of neighbouring rays increases with beam number N. (c) Interference observed inside the focal plane of the lens L2.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Phasor diagrams for multiple-beam interference (a) in the focal plane of a converging lens and (b) when the converging lens is removed. In each case the broken line is the locus of the tip of the resultant amplitude vector. The distance y is marked along the locus in (b) (2d = 6.328 mm, wavelength = 632.8 nm, a = 1 m).
