Paper Abstract

After six years of existence, Achromatic Three-Wave Lateral Shearing Interferometer (ATWLSI) is currently in use in wave-front analysis of high-intensity ultra-short laser pulses. The purpose of this paper is to compare ATWLSI to the well-known Hartmann-Shack wave-front sensor (HSWFS) for different generic applications: optical testing, atmospheric turbulence and ultra-short laser pulses analysis and correction. This qualitative comparison is made on the basis of a description of HSWFS, seen as a lateral shearing interferometer.
