The coherent artifacts have harmful influence on the measurement results and make the precision worse during the optical testing. Using RoF illumination method, we can get evener coherent artifacts on the interferogram, improve the gain in S/N ratio, and reduce the measurement error. In this paper we analyze the RoF illumination interferometer, compare the spatial coherence of the RoF and that of the quasi-point light source, get the intensity distribution of the interference field, obtain the fringe visibility, and make a further analysis of the result precision dependence on RoF radius and cavity length.
