Paper Abstract

We describe a theoretical concept of achromatic phase shifting using dispersive elements. This concept is able to provide any desirable phase shift. Its achromatic behavior in terms of spectral bandwidth and/or residual phase shift error can be improved by increasing the number of elements. Furthermore, the ability to adjust the optical path through each element enables to overcome manufacturing inaccuracy. We show some theoretical curves of residual phase shift errors obtained with this method over a wavelength region from 400 nm to 1000 nm.
