The biprism consist of two active angled prisms with their bases in contact. Here two sources S1 and S2 are the virtual image of the fine slit S as shown in Figure 4. All are mounted on an optical bench. These are adjusted at the same height and can move and rotate as required.

Engineering Physics by Dr. Amita Maurya, Peoples University, Bhopal. A Fresnel Biprism is a thin double prism placed base to base and have very small refracting angle 0. The interference is observed by the division of wave front. Determination of wave length of light As expression for fringe width is Biprism can be used to determine the wavelength of given monochromatic light using the expression. Experimental Arrangement.

Light from monochromatic source is made to fall on a thin slit mounted vertically on a rigid optical bench fitted with a scale. The biprism and the screen in this case an eye piece are also mounted vertically. The eye piece can be moved in the plane perpendicular to the axis of bench using a micrometer based translation stage. The vertical wire of the eyepiece is made to coincide with one of the fringes and screw of micrometer is moved sideways and number of fringes is counted.

The lens is moved along the length of bench to a position where two images of slits are seen in the plane of cross wires of eye piece. 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. Now the lens is moved such that for another position of lens, again two images of slit are seen on eye piece.

B Determination of thickness of a thin film: To determine the thickness of transparent thin sheet mica , the monochromatic source is replaced by white light source. 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. Now mica sheet is introduced in the path of one wave. By doing it the one wave traverse an extra optical path and the path difference between the two waves is not same and entire fringe pattern shifts.

The central white fringe is now shifted to another position of cross wire.

The distance d1 between Ex;eriment and B1 is measured by the micrometre eyepiece. Your advantages 1 year warranty curricula compliant quality — made in Germany individual service available experiment guides online more than 5. We try improving the quality of our products for every consignment we dispatch. Slit, width adjustable up to 1 mm. If experriment 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.
