Paper Abstract

The self-imaging phenomenon, or the Talbot effect, is diffraction and interference effect for coherent light that is transmitted through infinite grating or other periodic structure. But in practice, intensity distribution is reproduced with some distortions due to finite size of a grating. The influence of aperture effects on quality of wavefront reconstruction by the sensor based on the Talbot effect is considered in this work. 2D binary and gray-scale amplitude gratings with different periods and form of holes were used as the input element of the sensor. Computer simulation for different aberrations and varying aperture size was performed. The experimental results of comparative analysis of wavefront measurements by the diffraction Talbot sensor with a finite aperture and the Shack-Hartman sensor are presented.
