Abstract

To test the model developed in the preceding paper [Appl. Opt. 34, this issue (1994)] regarding the line shape produced by a Fabry–Perot interferometer system in a multipass mode, we have used three Lorentzian line shapes formed in scattering processes and subjected them to single and triple passes with some variation in the pinhole diameter. In most cases we find good agreement with the calculations with the only adjustable parameter being the single-pass contrast C1. Where differences occur, plausible explanations are offered.
