Title: Dispersion-free interferometers of reflected light

Abstract

Computer simulation of a double-mirror multiple-beam reflecting interferometer (RI) with {open_quotes}resonant{close_quotes}mirrors is described. To a first approximation, the intensity of reflected light does not depend on the light frequency but depends on the distance l between the mirrors. It is shown that the sensitivity of the dispersion-free RI to variations of l is approximately equal to that of the conventional RI. This sensitivity is 3 to 4 times better than in the case of a Fabry-Perot interferometer operating in the transmission mode. One of the mirrors of the RI should be {open_quotes}resonant,{close_quotes} whereas the other one may be either {open_quotes}resonant{close_quotes} or usual. It is shown that the dispersion-free operation can also be realized in RI with the {open_quotes}transmission-like{close_quotes} response function. For this purpose, a metal-dielectric design of an absorbing resonant mirror providing a {open_quotes}one-sided{close_quotes} reflection is proposed. 6 refs., 6 figs.
