Paper Abstract

Phase-shift interferometry suffers from periodic systematic errors caused by erroneous reference phase adjustments and instabilities of the interferometer. A new method is described that uses only four interferograms and eliminates the errors caused by linear adjustment deviations of the reference phase or the mean phase in the interferometer. Test results confirm the theoretical predictions.
