Abstract

A spatial phase-shifting shearing interferometry is presented in this paper. The whole optical configuration is simple and consists of three Ronchi gratings. Four phase-shifted shearing interferograms can be obtained simultaneously. The explicit intensity distributions of shearing interferograms are given and a corresponding four-step spatial phase-shifting algorithm is proposed to extract phase information from the new interferometry. This spatial phase-shifting configuration is applied to extract phase projection of a propane flame and a mathematical error analysis is presented.
