Abstract
A pair of thin prisms is used to deviate the light beam without changing the image orientation in a vectorial shearing interferometer. The relative angle between prisms determines the position of the wave front and its tilt. This system is employed to control the displacement of a sheared wave front as a vector quantity and to introduce a controlled amount of tilt in a novel interferometric shearing system. The predicted performance of this wave-front director is confirmed experimentally.
