A distillation of Dr. Wyant's course at the University of Arizona, this Field Guide covers the key fundamentals of interferometry, types of interferometers and interferograms, concepts of phase-shifting interferometry, long-wavelength interferometry, testing of aspheric surfaces, measurement of surface microstructure, flat and curved surface testing, and absolute measurements.
The material covered in the Field Guide to Interferometric Optical Testing is derived from a course taught by Dr. Wyant at the College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona. The material has evolved over the years as the underlying technologies and techniques have changed. This text is meant as a reference of interferometric principles and methods for the practicing engineer.
Eric Goodwin dedicates this Field Guide to his wife, Sam, and their daughter, Ryan.
James Wyant dedicates this Field Guide to the memory of Louise.
