A monochromatic radiation emitted by a laser diode, by means of an optical fibre, is divided into two parallel beams, one of the optical (reference) beams goes, through optical fibre, round the measuring structure of the refraction angle by SPR technique and reaches an optical adder.
The result for Fraunhofer diffraction of monochromatic radiation is well known, and this work reports the result for radiation from a Planckian source.
