Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe a simple interferometric phasemeter which can be used as a linear sensor. This method is based on the interferometric restoration of both p- and s-components of the resultant field. The phase shift between them as a function of the attenuation of the total internal reflection can be determined from the interference signal. A lateral fringe shift and contrast variations were observed during the measurements. To explain these effects a simple theory is proposed. The resulting interferometrical signal is studied experimentally.
