Figure 3.4 Schematic of a Mach-Zehnder interferometer showing the direction of
light passing through each component.
Figure 3.5 Schematic of a Mach-Zehnder interferometer showing pupil plane recom-
shows the classic Mach-Zehnder interferometer, which takes in a collimated beam
and produces its interferogram in a pupil plane.
In both cases, the interferogram generated with a Mach-Zehnder interferometer
results from the superposition of two beams. If the two beams are identical, they in-
