Paper Abstract

The two terms "fringes of defocusing" and "fringes of lateral displacement" are used in the interferometric testing of lens aberrations. The definition of these terms can be related to the three-dimensional intensity distribution near the focus of a spherical wave. 14 In this note we will relate these two usages of the terms.
