What is Optical Interference?
Optical Interference is an effect that can occur when two or more light beams are superimposed. We knew that a ray of light is composed of an infinite number of waves of equal wavelength. the value of the wavelength determines the colour of light. For the sake of simplicity, let us consider two waves, having […]

What are the Optical Measurement Techniques in Metrology?
An Optical measurement device is made up of Optical means. We are familiar with the most common applications of optics, namely Microscopes. Chemists, Biologists, and engineers use various types of microscopes. The main function of the microscope is that, for the visual magnification of small objects to a high degree with an additional provision for […]
What are the sources of errors in measurement?
Yes, it is not possible to measure the true value of an object, there will be definitely an existence of error either it can be very small (Negligible) or considerable based on application. This error can be evaluated as either an absolute error or a relative error. let’s discuss different sources of errors in measurement. This is a […]
