Solution Preview

An interference wedge is a technique used for interference in spectroscopy. A light from the source (S) is located at the focal point of a Fresnel lens (F1), and focused by a second lens (F2) to form a real image S' of S at the aperture of the integrating sphere (IS). The LCD is mounted in the collimated beam directly after the interference wedge (IF) which gives ...
