For a Fabry-Perot interferometer or etalon, a value for the transmission bandwidth which can be calculated as the ratio of the free spectral range to the full width half maximum of the transmission peaks. For an etalon, a high finesse is dependent on high reflectivity. Defects in the reflective surface will result in a lower finesse.
