Paper Abstract

The Fourier-transform method determines the interference phase distribution from an interference pattern. If evaluating only a single pattern, the sign remains unknown. Methods for interactive sign correction and for determination of the sign by two phase shifted interferograms are presented. For demodulation of the wrapped phase, a path independent algorithm is described.
