A blind self-calibrating algorithm for phase-shifting interferometry is presented, with which the nonlinear interaction introduced by phase shift errors, between the reconstructed phases and the reconstructed amplitudes of the reference wave, is measured with cross-bispectrum. Minimizing an objective function based on this cross-bispectrum allows accurately estimating the true phase shifts from only three interferograms in the absence of any supplementary assumptions and knowledge about these interferograms.
