Fabry-Perot Interferometer

A Fabry–Perot interferometer (also called an étalon) is an optical instrument consisting of two highly reflecting parallel mirrors separated by a transparent plate of width . This produces a multiple-beam interference pattern from a beam of light of wavelength with an angle . The light interferes constructively whenever , where .
