Abstract
A rotationally shearing interferometer may be used for a detection of wavefront asymmetry, even when it is very small. We derive the analytical expressions demonstrating that the asymmetrical part of the wavefront aberration function may indeed be detected using a rotationally shearing interferometer. The aberration coefficients up to the fourth order in the radial coordinate may be found using the rotationally shearing interferometer. The method of rotationally shearing interferometry is shown to be particularly suitable for the characterization of the asymmetrical optical systems.
