Abstract

An inexpensive field instrument has been built to measure changes in water level to an accuracy of λ/8. A novel magnetic suspension is used to position the floating retroreflector of a laser interferometer. Direction sensing is achieved by dual optical channels phased near quadrature by means of an absorbing beam splitter.
