Abstract

We present an algorithm that uses a square grid in a Ronchi test. We assume that the point coordinates of this pattern (termed a bironchigram) are affected by Gaussian errors. To calculate the optical path difference, we apply only one nonlinear least-squares fit to the dot coordinates. The relevant equations are deduced, and experimental results are shown.
