Abstract

A phase-shifting algorithm is proposed and experimentally demonstrated for phase-difference analysis. The method involves only three steps, the original and two equal in amount but unknown phase steps for each stage. Only six frames of data are thus sufficient for the phase-difference analysis between two stages. Real-time holographic interferometry with a concentration change in a sugar-water solution in a test cell is presented for experimental verification.
