Abstract
A tutorial on the subject of interferometer fringe scaling factors is offered. Various approaches are pursued in the hope of reaching a broad audience. The distinction between fringes and waves is established and maintained, and a procedure for interpreting interferograms is provided. Scale factors for various cases are shown.
