Measurement of Refractive Index Using a Michelson Interferometer.
Fendley, J. J.
Physics Education, v17 n5 p209-11 Sep 1982
Describes a novel and simple method of measuring the refractive index of transparent plates using a Michelson interferometer. Since it is necessary to use a computer program when determining the refractive index, undergraduates could be given the opportunity of writing their own programs. (Author/JN)
