Paper Abstract

The Fabry-Perot interferometer is being applied increasingly as a tunable filter. The theoretical limits to its performance are considered, including the effects of phase change at multilayer reflecting coatings. Various forms of construction are discussed as are several ways of tuning Fabry-Perot filters. The review concludes with a description of a number of practical devices.
