Paper Abstract

The Ronchi test with a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) phase grating is used for testing convergent optical systems. The rulings are computer-generated and displayed on the LCD. We prove that it is possible to make a variable electronically phase grating by using an LCD. By displaying various phase-shifted rulings and capturing the corresponding ronchigrams, the phase is obtained with the conventional phase-shifting algorithms. Experimental results are shown.
