Paper Abstract

In a phase-shifting interferometer, spatial non-uniformity of the phase modulation happens in such a case where an aspherical mirror is compared to the corresponding aspherical standard surface which is translated along the optical axis by a piezo electric transducer. The amount of phase shift is different from position to position across the observing aperture depending on the direction cosine of the testing surface. In another case, when the reference optical flat is translated by two or more piezo-electric transducers, we cannot ensure that the reference surface moves strictly parallel to the optical axis. When these transducers have different sensitivities, the phase modulation is not longer spatially uniform and varies across the observing aperture.
