Shearing interferometer for phase shifting interferometry with polarization phase shifter

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A cyclic interferometer can be used for both lateral and radial shearing. Being common-path this interferometer is quite stable. The use of a cyclic shear interferometer for phase shifting interferometry is discussed. The phase shifting is provided here by polarization techniques. Some useful cyclic phase shifting interferometer arrangements are discussed, and the working of a polarization phase shifting cyclic shear interferometer is demonstrated.
