Paper Abstract

The wavefront shape can be obtained from lateral shear interferograms even if the lateral shear is large. Many procedures have been devised in the past to achieve this purpose. However, all of them have serious practical restrictions. A method is reported here using a digital analysis of the interferogram in the Fourier space. An alternative iterative method also using Fourier transform techniques is also presented with detail. A comparison of this method with alternative existing procedures is described.
