  • interference microscope

A special form of microscope that utilizes interference for observing and measuring the phase and optical thickness in completely transparent objects and specimen. The object is placed in one beam path of a tiny interferometer. That path is then split and later recombined to generate two superimposed images of the object at the observation plane. The variations in optical thickness and phase of the object are then measured by variations in the brightness of the image
