Paper Abstract

Temporal methods of fringe analysis have been used to measure transient effects due to high average power thermal loading in solid-state optical crystals. Studies using a dual-interferometric configuration have revealed non-uniform and non-reciprocal lensing to be a significant source of error in the output fringe patterns. This study isolated and quantified the impact of such lensing with respect to interferometric analytic techniques.
