Paper Abstract

We simulate the interference patterns of solar systems, incorporating an Estrella and two Tierras, as detected by a rotational shearing interferometer, to compare with laboratory setup. Three rays are propagated to represent each wavefront in the interferometer, using the exact ray tracing technique. Then, the phase, with which light beams are incident into the detection plane is used to calculate the orientation of the incident wavefront. Finally, all the incident wavefronts are summed together to obtain the resulting interference pattern.
