PURPOSE: Moire pattern model of interferometer.
DESCRIPTION: Two coherent monochromatic soiurces are modeled by transparencies of two sets of concentric uniformly spaced circles. Superpose the two sources and look along the line between the centers for the circular (in three dimensions) interference pattern. This model shows waves in a two-dimensional plane including the sources.
REFERENCES: (PIRA unknown.)
EQUIPMENT: Klinger interference slides.
SETUP TIME: None.
