Abstract

A multiple beam interference model based on the ray tracing method and interference theory is built to analyze the interference patterns of a capillary tube filled with a liquid. The relations between the angular widths of the interference fringes and the parameters of both the capillary and liquid are derived. Based on these relations, an approach is proposed to simultaneously determine four parameters of the capillary, i.e., the inner and outer radii of the capillary, the refractive indices of the liquid, and the wall material.
