Some Examples of Seemingly Plausible Interpretation of Experimental Results

Section: Optics, Lasers, and Quantum Electronics
Original Author's Text: Ukrainian

Abstract: Some examples of a seemingly plausible but wrong interpretation of experimental results have been considered on the basis of the theory of rigorous mathematical interpretation of experimental data. The ability of apparatus errors to significantly affect the measurement results in optical experiments is demonstrated. Ignoring this fact can result in erroneous conclusions concerning the physical nature of the optical phenomena under consideration.

Key words: optical experiment, apparatus errors, ill-posed problems, regularization method.
