Paper Abstract

The phase shifting method is an effective tool to determine the intensity modulation distribution of a two-beam interferogram. We present numerical studies of the influence of two experimental errors on the results obtained using temporal phase stepping, i.e., the phase step miscalibration and average intensity changes between the component interferograms. Experimental studies of vibration mode patterns by time-average interferometry provide excellent verification of numerical findings. Comparative analysis of interferogram contrast and intensity modulation determination is included.
