  In this work, the convective heat transfer coefficient h of a vertical hot wire was measured by Michelson interferometer in different wire segments. The electrical wire carrying several amperes was situated in one of the interferometer arms in order to record the interference pattern. Subsequently the temperature gradient around the heat source changes the linear fringes to be curved. The air refractive index profile n(r) as well as the density ?(r) were evaluated by obtaining the fringe shift and employing the Abel transform leading to the spatial temperature profile T(r) and h measurement as well.
