Abstract

The simple formula derived in the paper establishes a direct relationship between moire beat patterns and basic grids for minute displacements. The possibilities of finding a basic grid for a desired moire pattern are pointed out. The analysis is illustrated by several examples of Fresnel moire zone plate patterns and concentric equidistant circular moire patterns obtained by changes of scale and rotation. Possible advantages of the practical use of this element are outlined.
