Direct measurement of the absolute light refractive index of air


Direct measurement of the absolute light refractive index of air with the made double Michelson interferometer


Jozef Babiak


The paper describes the direct measurement of the absolute index of refraction of air double-Michel son interferometer without knowing parameters of the air, namely, pressure, temperature and chemical composition of the air. The direct measurement and the calculation of absolute index of refraction of air double Michelson interferometer is used as the applicable laws of optics.
