Abstract

A classical Mach–Zehnder two-beam interferometer was modernized using the Wollaston compensator, which allowed obtaining a stable set of specific optical markers—optical vortices. This new interferometer setup that generated optical vortices was used to measure small angle tilt. The theoretical basis of setups behavior has been described. The value of the described setup was confirmed by practical experiments.
