The etalon wheel is contained within a sealed cavity. This cavity can be continuously flushed with dry nitrogen in order to maintain low humidity.
A light table is provided for alignment of etalons. The etalon to be aligned is positioned within the light table, and is illuminated with a comparison lamp mounted underneath the table. It is then possible to view the interference fringes through a transparent hatch in the top of the light table.
