Paper Abstract

A shearing interferometer produces the differential interference fringes of a wavefront, so that it is useful in measuring the lateral aberrations of lenses. Recently holographic shearing interferometer has been applied to the measurement of lateral aberrations of lenses owing to several advantages 1)2). However, when we obtain an aberration curve from a shearing interferogram, the differential equation must be solved numerically. To overcome this disadvantage, a new type of holographic shearing interferometer is proposed here. The interference fringes obtained by this interferometer can directly represent the lateral aberration curve of a lens.
