    We present an experimental arrangement of an interferometric system designed to operate with full compensation for varying refractive index of air in the measuring axis. The concept is based on a principle where the wavelength of the laser source is derived not from an optical frequency of the stabilized laser but from a fixed length being a base-plate or a frame of the whole measuring setup. This results into stabilization of the wavelength of the laser source in atmospheric conditions to mechanical length of suitable etalon made of a material with very low thermal expansion. The ultra-low thermal expanding glass ceramic materials available on the market perform thermal expansion coefficients on the level 10-8 which significantly exceeds the limits of uncertainty posed by indirect evaluation of refractive index of air through Edlen formula. To verify the concept a tracking of laser frequency following the drift of refractive index has been performed.
