Paper Abstract

Newton's Ring is a fundamental discovery and is an objective existence, but its distributing mathematic Law has no broad sense. The result come out with by sir Isaac Newton is only a special case. We have done a lot of experiments with laser light and discovered that Laser Newton's Ring possesses many forms. We can not only acquire the image of Newton's ring on the wedge surface, but we can get the image from the space of certain range, and the spatial Laser Newton's Ring possesses some contrary properties compared with traditional Newton's Ring, that is, we have added some new concepts to the knowledge. This new discovery will bring a lot of new applications in many domains.
