Abstract
This paper concerns a numerical technique for evaluating effect of wave aberration on the frequency response of a laser Fizeau interferometer. The frequency response is described by Coherent Phase Transfer Function, which is defined as the Fourier transform of the phase of the complex image of a phase object formed by the interferometer normalized to the Fourier transform of the phase object itself. Based on the results of the study an aberration tolerance criterion of 1/8-wave P-V is proposed for the optical design of a laser Fizeau interferometer.
