Paper Abstract

When two beams of an interferometer are directed to the same object at different incident angles, the recombined, reflected beams generate an interference pattern with a large equivalent wavelength. This paper reviews the basic principles of these `desensitized' interferometers, and describes a novel diffractive geometry that is particularly well adapted to manufacturing applications, thanks to its large working distance, achromatism and high accuracy.
