Paper Abstract

A new technique of optical interferometry based on the statistics of the fully developed speckle field is proposed. It is revealed that the complete randomness of the speckle phase can play a role of a standard phase in a statistical sense, and the phase of the object under testing can be derived in a statistical way, in contrast to conventional interferometry. The technique is first described in relation to the phase-shifting interferometry and the compensation problem for the phase-shift error. Next the method is generalized as an independent interferometric technique.
