Interferometry refers to a family of techniques in which electromagnetic waves are superimposed in order to
extract information about the waves. An instrument used to interfere waves is called an interferometer.
Interferometry is an important investigative technique in the fields of astronomy, fiber optics, engineering
metrology, optical metrology, oceanography, seismology, quantum mechanics, nuclear and particle physics, plasma
physics, remote sensing and biomolecular interactions. --
