Precision Fresnel Biprism Interference Apparatus
  •    Perform Fresnel's Biprism Experiment on a 1m optical bench

    • Precision optics allow fringe position measurements to 1/100mm

    • Easy alignment and adjustment of the two virtual light sources

More Information
  • Fresnel's Biprism Experiment is the fundamental example of common path interference by division of wavefront.

  • Light from a slit passes through side-by-side prisms with very shallow angles to separate it into two almost parallel beams.

  • When these beams are brought to overlapping by a convex lens, they interact as if they originated from two virtual sources side by side and generate equally-spaced fringes.

  • The original version of the experiment by Fresnel is difficult to perform because it requires precise adjustment of the slit and prisms, a dark room, and a large amount of space to separate the fringes for easy viewing
