Abstract
The error caused by nonzero fringe pattern in a phase shifting interferometer is `harmful' to testing a long radius optic. In this paper, with the help of a concept of retrace error the error is analyzed through the combination of experiments with simulated calculations, and more sensitive elements are found in system alignment, so that the effect of the misalignment of optical elements on the retrace error is reduced to minimum.
