Abstract
Michelsonov interferometar je uređaj koji razdvaja zraku svjetlosti na dvije koje imaju odvojene putanje te se ponovo sastaju na detektoru. Inteferometar, kojeg je konstruirao Michelson, se sastoji od koherentnog izvora svjetlosti (natrijeve lučice, a danas lasera), djelitelja snopa, dva zrcala (od kojih je jedno pomično) i detektora (teleskopa ili u našem slučaju bijelog zastora). Michelsonov interferometar se koristi za određivanje malog pomaka predmeta, mjerenje indeksa loma optičkog sredstva i za detekciju gravitacijskih valova. Također, možemo ga koristiti i za podešavanje drugih optičkih uređaja.

Parallel abstract (English)
The Michelson interferometer is a device that separates a beam of light into two separate tracks which meet again on the detector. The Inteferometer, constructed by the Michelson, consists of a coherent light source (sodium harbor or laser nowadays), a beam splitter, two mirrors (one of which is movable) and a detector (a telescope or in this case a white curtain). The Michelson interferometer is used to determine small displacements of objects, to measure the refractive index of the optical device and to detect gravitational waves. Also, we can use it to set up other optical devices.
