Paper Abstract

Lasers have increased the use of interferometers for optical testing and have changed the types that are used. Fizeau and Twyman-Green interferometers with classical sources remain useful for testing flats and flat-sided components, but complete systems are now most easily tested by new common-path interfero-meters and a laser source. Surfaces of unusual shapes can be tested by hologram interference.
