Abstract
Lateral shear interferometry operating in the convergent beam mode has been used for testing optical components. This method is simple and phase information of the wavefront has conventionally been extracted using phase stepping techniques. We propose to use defocus, which introduces uniform tilt as a means of extracting phase information via two procedures, namely spatial phase stepping and spatial frequency carrier method. Experimental results are presented that show the wavefront phase extracted with defocus before and after the focal point of the lens.
