Abstract

An interference analysis for double-grating shearing interferometry called coherent gradient sensing is presented, and the results are compared with an earlier geometrical optics analysis and a Fourier optics analysis based on the Fresnel approximation. The influence of the order of approximation in these analyses and the equivalence of fringe interpretation in each case are discussed.
