Abstract

A method for routine, but precise measurements of refractive index is described. The method is fast and accurate. It is based on the analysis of interference fringes, and uses positions of the fringe maxima and/or minima and a precise measurement of sample thickness to extract refractive index. An extremely dense dataset of refractive index values over the entire spectral range of interest can be routinely obtained.
