Theory of the Corner-Cube Interferometer

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The corner-cube interferometer is analyzed geometrically and analytically. When the prisms are used near their axis, the instrument is found to behave essentially like an interferometer using triple sets of front-surface mirrors. Equations are obtained describing the fringe patterns when one prism is used far off its axis, and also when both are used near their axis. These fringe patterns are discussed and illustrated.
