Paper Abstract

We present a novel procedure of phase recovery from undersampled phase-shifted interferograms. First, we use synthetic interferograms to calculate the wrapped phase differences along two orthogonal directions. Second, we unwrap them to recover the true Laplacian of the phase. The final step is to integrate the unwrapped phase differences to give the searched phase. This method may be used with either path independent or path dependent phase unwrapping algorithms. The technique overcomes the sensitivity to noise of previous algorithms when low pass filtering techniques are applied during the calculation of the phase differences and least square methods are employed in the final step of phase integration.
