Fresnel’s biprism in this experiment forms two virtual images of the point source; A1 and A2, both in the plane of the focus of the lens. These two. Fresnel biprism is used to divide the wavefront of a monochromatic, coherent beam of What is meant by the virtual source in Fresnels Biprism experiment? 2. The Fresnel biprism experiment was one of the early experiments which demonstrated the phenomenon of interference between two coherent light beams.

Benefits Multifunctional light box – All-in-one: Description Scope of Supply Downloads and Documents Principle Along with the Fresnel double mirror experiment, this experiment with a Fresnel biprism is another one of historical significance which was performed in the 18th and 19th centuries to demonstrate the wave theory of light. Amita Maurya, Peoples University, Bhopal. The eye piece can be moved in the plane perpendicular to the axis of bench using a micrometer based translation stage.


The students should first make themselves familiar with the general setup of the Fresnel experiment and describe the interference patterns.

Screen, white, x mm. Measure the distance between the virtual light sources and, using this and the interference pattern, determine the wavelength of red light.

The position of this central white fringe is recorded by focusing the cross wire of eye piece on it and taking this reading of micrometer scale.

In the second experiment, the wavelength of red light is to be determined. The central white fringe is now shifted to another position of cross wire. The students can use the other colour filters e. The distance between these two images of slit is measured by setting the vertical cross wire successively on each of images and recording the two positions of cross wire using micrometer.

This distance between source biptism eyepiece is directly measured on the optical bench scale. The vertical wire of the eyepiece is made to coincide with one of fesnel fringes and screw of micrometer is moved sideways and number of fringes is counted. P Required Accessories print.

B Determination of thickness of a thin film: Determination of wave length of light. As expression for fringe width is.

experimsnt If a diverging beam of light strikes the edge of the biprism, two diverging coherent light beams are created which appear to emerge from two virtual slits and interfere on the far side of the biprism.

The biprism and the screen in this case an eye piece are also mounted vertically.
