Abstract:

The concept of a Self-Referencing Interferometer The term self-referencing interferometer describes a finite dielectric slab with sensors such as dipole antennas connected to detectors. More general structures are possible. For example, the dielectric can be a hollow shell, and the sensors might be antennas. However, flat dielectrics emphasize the physical basis. The essence of this interferometer is that an incident wave excites two coherent waves that have distinct propagation constants. Author
