We present a practical numerical method for processing the fringes obtained when two waves, with a quadratic phase difference function, interfere. This kind of fringe includes straight equispaced fringes and Newton's rings as particular cases. The numerical method we present is based on the discrete Fresnel (Fourier) transform of the data and has the same precision as least square fitting (LSF). Compared to the LSF method, this new method is better, as it is more efficient and does not require initial approximations for the fringe parameters to be determined.
