Paper Abstract

Precise refractive index values of liquids have been obtained by an innovating method using two Michelson interferonieters. The first interferometer measures the variation of the optical pathlength in the liquid while the second controls the variation of the sample thickness. The present method may attain accuracies as high as iO- 1O6 for the refractive index values of liquids.
