Method to make accurate measurements of refractive index
Author(s): Carlos Robledo-Sánchez; Nazario Bautista-Elivar

Paper Abstract

We propose in this work the use a diffraction grating to calculate the wavelength inside a transparent material of parallel plane faces, with the purpose of measuring the magnitude of their refractive index. The errors of this method and the precision are discussed.
