Homework Help: Michelson interferometer - change splitting pattern

  1. Nov 17, 2008 #1
    How would you change the splitting patterns for an interferometer? (Specifically a Michelson interferometer, if it matters) How would changing the fixed mirror, movable mirror, etc. affect the pattern?

    We just started learning some optics, and are just supposed to understand this conceptually or with a minimum amount of math.
