Abstract

An interferometer based on using low-coherent light source, a square prism, and the angular-scanning technique is proposed for absolute angular-displacement determinations. An angular displacement of the square prism shifts the correlogram, which is modulated by an envelope function, of the interference signal of the beams passing through the prism. This angle can thus be discovered by detecting the shifting of the envelope peak. A setup constructed to validate the interferometer is used. The results of using this setup are then presented.
