Paper Abstract

A pair of thin prisms produces a controlled vectorial displacement of a wavefront with a high precision. We present ray-trace equations modeling a three-dimensional wavefront propagation. We propagate an array of rays through a pair of prisms for different angles of rotation between the prisms to obtain the exact performance of thin prisms. The high control of the wavefront position is required in a vectorial shearing interferometer.
