Total interference is the sum of interference of individual wave.interference termSummation of interferences of different waves reduces the visibility of fringes.

Fluctuation of 1000 MDI Dopplergrams is about 10%.1% for the 2nd and 3rd fringes ifRemove suppression by an empirical relation of power vs. field strength. Search for interference fringes outside magnetic regions. 3. Find an optimal filter to detect interference fringes.
