Conversion of optical path length to frequency by an interferometer using photorefractive oscillation


Frequency detuning effects in photorefractive oscillators are used in a new type of (passive) interferometry which converts optical path length changes to frequency shifts. Such an interferometer is potentially more accurate than conventional interferometers which convert optical path length changes to phase or intensity changes.
