Abstract

A shearing interferometer with a Kitty-type self-pumped phase-conjugate mirror is developed. The measurement of the focal length of a lens is demonstrated with a standard deviation of 1.5%. In addition, we measured the microdisplacement in the range of tens of micrometers with an error less than 2% by using the interferometer.
