Abstract

A calculation method for a quadrature phase-shifting interferometer is presented, and its applications to specular and speckle interferometers and digital holography are described. Two sets of quadrature phase-shifted interferograms are acquired, and the calculation method proposed gives the phase distribution of the interferograms. The principle of the calculation method with error analysis and experimental results for specular and speckle interferometers and digital holography are also given.
