The performance of interferometers is strongly affected by thermal drift and mechanical vibrations. These induce fluctuations in the fringe positions and fringe densities causing a fluctuating interference pattern with a reduced visibility. The amount of fluctuations induced by these effects depends on the type of interferometer. Here we introduce a new class of interferometers, the double beam circular interferometers (DBCI), which are extremely insensitive to the fluctuations described above.
