Paper Abstract

A simple zonal approach is proposed for estimating phase distribution on large grids. The estimation is based on phase differences that are precisely measured in two orthogonal directions by a lateral shearing interferometer. It requires only O(N2) operations for reconstructing a phase distribution on a N by N grid. Computer simulation and experimental results are demonstrated to show effectiveness of the new algorithm.
