Measurement of the refractive index of a special sample

  1. Jul 31, 2006 #1
    I want to measure the refractive index of a thin cantilever ; however the sample is too small (about tens of microns). on the other hand, the cantilever maybe not flat at all and it is curly. how can I do it?

    My sample is too small and curly so that I don't think the normal method to measure the refractive index is useful.
