Abstract

The van Cittert–Zernike theorem can be used to evaluate visibility at the exit of an amplitude-division interferometer with two-beam interferences. If the source illuminating the interferometer is a periodic array of slits, at the exit there is a sequence of localization surfaces. The formulas for the position and fringe spacing of the principal localization surfaces are applied to a Wollaston quartz prism, and there is good agreement between theoretical and experimental results. Moreover, the fringe localization depth and the intermediate localization surfaces obtained experimentally coincide with those predicted by theory.
