Paper Abstract

This paper describes a simple method of measuring the refractive index of a liquid. The basic element is a thin wedge cell, and the source of light is a low power He-Ne laser. Conditions are derived to obtain the best possible accuracy using this setup. The same setup can also be used for the determination of the refractive index of a solid medium such as glass.
