Abstract

Conventional Mach–Zehnder interferometer configuration is modified to enhance its stability from the vibrations. To study the effects of vibrations on the Mach–Zehnder interferometer, we used spectral interference fringes from a broadband nanosecond dye laser source. We observed an improvement in the stability of the interferometer by a factor of 3.
