Abstract
When digitizing an interferogram with a detector array, the sampling theorem requires the minimum local fringe spacing or period to be greater than twice the pixel separation. Thus, given a detector, there is a minimum fringe period that may be allowed.1,2 This minimum period, in turn, is set by the wavefront asphericity and the testing method.
