The use of a laser interferometer as a metrological tool in micro-optics measurement is demonstrated. A transmissive interferometer is effective in measuring an optical specimen having a high angle slope. A configuration that consists of an optical resolution of 0.62 micron is adapted to measure a specimen, which is a micro-Fresnel lens-shaped lenticular lens. The measurement result shows a good repeatability at each fraction of facets, however, a reconstruction of the lens shape profile is disturbed by a known problem of <TEX>$2{\pi}$</TEX>-ambiguity. To solve this <TEX>$2{\pi}$</TEX>-ambiguity problem, we propose a two-step phase unwrapping method. In the first step, an unwrapped phase map is obtained by using a conventional unwrapping method. Then, a proposed unwrapping method based on the shape modeling is applied to correct the wrongly unwrapped phase. A measured height of each facet is compared with a profile result measured by AFM.
