The method I am using is straight out of the Help browser for optica (graphical tour section), I am using a more complicated interferometer set up, but I have just shown the basic Michelson one from the help section, as I assume the method for getting more information about the interference would be the same:

system == {Move[GaussianBeam[1.5,.01,FullForm->True],-50],









interference == FindInterference[system];
