The new type of interferometer with the mechanical division of ray is developed. In contrast to the Michelson interferometer this interferometer does not contain the dividing and reflecting mirrors, which gives the possibility to carry out the experiments, which cannot be conducted with the aid of the Michelson interferometer.
