Paper Abstract

A Jamin interferometer-based arrangement for measurement of single-pass wavefront distortion, introduced by optical components such as laser rods, parallel plates, optical windows, etc., is discussed. Phase shifting interferometry is applied using a wedge-type phase shifter. Fabrication techniques for the Jamin plates and wedge phase shifter are described. Results are shown for a laser rod. Advantages and disadvantages of the configuration are discussed.
