Abstract

A simple autocollimation scheme for a laser refractometer with a highly sensitive, single-mode, fiber-optic output is described. It allows for the determination of the refractive index and dispersion of optical materials with an accuracy exceeding 10−5, which is confirmed by both experimental and analytical investigations.
