Principle

In the Michelson arrangement interference will occur by the use of 2 mirrors. The wavelength is determined by displacing one mirror using the micrometerscrew.

Benefits

  • discover the essence of the Physics Nobel Prize of 1907
  • lead to experimental findings that only special relativity theory could explain
  • pre setup of the critical components makes for short preparation time

Tasks

Determination of the wavelength of the light of the used laser.
