An interferogram can be demodulated to find the wavefront shape if a radial carrier is introduced. The phase determination is made in the space domain, but the low-pass filter characteristics must be properly chosen. One disadvantage of this method is the possible removal of some frequencies from the central lobe, resulting in a misinterpretation of the true phase. Nevertheless isolating the central order by using a recursive method when a radial carrier reference is used is possible. An example of a recovered phase from a simulated interferogram is shown.
