Fabry-Perot problem

  1. May 22, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Show that it is only necessary to increase the distance L between two mirrors of a Fabry-Perot cavity by a distance [tex]\lambda[/tex]/2 to scan the transmission peak over a range of one FSR

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I've started guiding you through the solution of your other posted problem. This attempt is really lame. Start by looking in your book and telling me what the FSR is.

    my book doesnt have FSR anywhere.
    I have never seen this type of problem.
    can you please guide me

    Try looking for for the phrase free spectral range. Then look for a graph of the transmission through a Fabry Perot etalon, can you tell me how to draw the FSR on this graph?
