Demos: 8A-02 Michelson Interferometer

This demonstration is a permanently mounted interferometer on an optics breadboard. An interferometer is a device which demonstrates interference by splitting a beam of light. The two beams will travel different distances before they are merged and interference can be observed. The light source is a battery powered green laser. With a minimum of adjustments, fringes can be observed. We will need a notification of use in a timely manner so the laser battery can be charged.
