Paper Abstract

We present a theoretical basis for a new type of interferometer, a differential rotationally shearing interferometer. It differs from the traditional rotationally shearing interferometer in that the angle of rotation is infinitesimal or, at least, very small. A differential rotationally shearing interferometer may be used for the detection of wavefront asymmetry, even when this asymmetry is very small.
