Paper Abstract

To test quality of the wavefronts number of arrangements are discussed in literature. Out of these the lateral shearing interferometers using diffracting elements are stable and simple devices. Lateral shear obtained by J.C. Waynt, rotation of two gratings by Hariharan et al and Rimmer and Waynt over come some of the drawbacks suffered by Ronchi interferometers. It has already been demonstrated that the two slightly displaced off axis zone plates acts exactly like a double frequency grating. This paper describes the holo-shear lens made on dichromatic gelatin for testing of off axis parabola. Joenathal et al investigate lateral shear interferometry with holo shear lens.
