Paper Abstract

Modifications of the basic Twyman Green Interferometer for the testing of the a cylindrical surface are described in this paper. A CGH cylindrical lens of f equals 45.0 mm is put in the test arm of the interferometer to serve as a null lens. Polarizing components are used to provide for adjustments of the intensities of the two beams. The resulting interferograms have a strong bright patch in the middle which does not allow the unwrapping of the phase. A modification of the CGH cylindrical element makes this patch to disappear making possible the application of phase shifting technique for measurement of these surfaces.
