The detuning phase shift error is a common systematic error observed in temporal phase shifting (TPS) algorithms. This error, generally due to miscalibration of the phase shifter, is solved by using a quadrature filter insensitive to this detuning error. To compare algorithms, this error is frequently analyzed numerically. However, in this work we present an exact and analytical expression to calculate such error which is applicable to any kind of filters with real or complex frequency response. Finally, a table with the detuning error for several algorithms is reported.
