Abstract
Interference patterns are produced by point light sources originating from an optical integrator. Influence of laser light coherence on interference pattern contrast is examined analytically and experimentally. The contrast is independent of temporal coherence and dependent on spatial coherence. The modulus of the complex coherence factor remains between 0.35 and 0.55 for the number of transverse modes between 30 and 240. The interference pattern can be eliminated by rotating the optical integrator. Resolution dependence on spectral bandwidth is experimentally examined using an NA=0.42 non-achromatic projection lens. Dependence of lens resolution on spectral bandwidth is greater than that estimated from MTF curve.
