German term or phrase:Sichtprüfinterferometer
...an interferometer with which you check flatness visually. I tend to come up with "interferometer for..." - is there a more compact expression for this device? All suggestions welcome, thanks!
Oh good! I just used the term "visual inspection interferometer", thanks for the confirmation just now! I konw I should wait 24hrs before grading, but since it's done and I'll be gone tomorrow, I'll close the question now.
Explanation: I'm afraid there is probably no way around describing it. The interferometer on the following website is quite similar to the one in your text, and it's called interferometer for visual interpretation of flatness (quite a mouthful, I know).
