An improvement of a 2D shearing interferometer to measure small and large non-rotationally symmetrical wavefronts aberrations is described. This interferometric system encompasses large and differential wavefront displacements using a high accuracy rotation system incorporated in a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. The rotation of the prism arrangement is controlled with an electronic servomotor system by means of an auto-tuning using a Neural Network Algorithm, NNA. We describe the servo-mechanical system, the electronic interface and algorithms to control the performance of the rotation device with the aim of obtain accurate wave front position by a prism rotator system.
