23 October 1997 Simulated interferometric patterns of a rotationally shearing interferometer
Author Affiliations +
The simulated interferometric patterns of the primary aberrations obtained with two rotationally sheared wavefronts are presented. The shearing angle is seen to control the number of fringes in the interferometric pattern. For small shearing angles, the phase difference in the argument of the cosine function reduces to the derivative of the wavefront multiplied by the shearing angle.
