We present recent applications of robust half-quadratic regularization for solving common problems in interferogram analysis. Specifically, we review half-quadratic cost functions for: phase unwrapping noisy and discontinuous wrapped phase maps, phase refinement process for computed coarse phases, as those obtained from partial-field patterns with a full-field method for open fringes analysis, for phase retrieval from closed-fringe interferograms and phase denoising. The cases of convex and the non-convex cost functions are analyzed: The convex formulation produces unique and noise-free solutions, but such solution are deteriorated by real discontinuities in phase maps; therefore, we also present a non-convex formulation which, with an extra computational cost, shows a superior performance.
