Paper Abstract

A new interferometric method for control of refractive index distribution in a plane-parallel section cut from a gradient-index (GRIN) lens blank is described. It uses a standard double- pass interferometric scheme modified to provide single passing of the beam through the investigated GRIN sample. The two-dimensional dependence of refractive index in transverse dimensions along the sample surface is measured with the accuracy better than 1 multiplied by 10-4.
