The usefulness of the Mathematica 3D visualisation and animation for investigation of fiber-optic loop interferometer in different engineering applications work is presented. The Jones? matrix calculus has been used for description as fiber-optic elements as all interferometric systems. Such uniform description gives a possibility to obtain analytical relations, which depend on fundamental system parameters. Unfortunately, these relations are usually too complicated for physical interpretation. The possibility of their analyse by the animated 3D graphics is also shown in the present paper.
