Paper Abstract

In holographic interferometry, the phase difference governing the interference pattern appears to deviate slightly from the value that follows from the usual formula. This phase deviation 6 is a.o. due to the nonvanishing detector aperture. For the case that the detector is focussed on the object surface, we calculate this for double exposure holography. In many practical situations δ appears to be maximized by a function proportional to the longitudinal displacement and to the square of the angular detector aperture, while δ does not exceed the value of π usually. Related to holographical systems which can measure the phase differences very accurately, formulas are derived for δ in the paraxial as well as the non-paraxial situation. Since in the paraxial situation δ can be approximated accurately by a simple function of only two variables, the emphasis is laid on the question how accurately (S can be approximated by the paraxial formulas in the non-paraxial situation.
