Laser-Based Michelson Interferometer and Interference Fringe Exploration

Michelson interferometer is a typical configuration for optical interferometry. Different configurations in the setup may lead to different interference fringes, and therefore it is worth of investigating the relation between them. With the help of non-sequential tracing technology in VirtualLab Fusion, it is easy to set up and to configure a Michelson interferometer, and to visualize the interference fringe in different situations. In this example, several typical situations and the corresponding fringes are demonstrated.
