Abstract

We are developing multilayer interferometer of Mach-Zehnder type for cold neutrons. To fulfill severe requirements for aligning the four mirrors, we utilize six solid-etalon-plates and a high precision flat base plate. New devices making use of magnetic birefringence have been developed and demonstrated to be useful for fine adjustment of superposition between the two paths labeled with neutron spin.
