Abstract
The measurement of wavefront aberrations for optical imaging systems plays a major role in the field of modern optics. Measurements with a Fizeau type interferometer and a shearing type interferometer are described. The interferometric set-up for the shearing interferometer and the algorithms, in particular for the evaluation of the wavefront aberration, are described in more detail. Various methods for the measurement of wavefront aberrations are compared.
