Abstract

We present a novel method for obtaining the phase distribution of an object spectrum by using a fringe-scanning phase-conjugate interferometer. A detailed analysis of the proposed technique is provided, and experimental demonstrations for validating this technique are also given. The major advantages of this method are its potentially high accuracy and its low space–bandwidth-product requirement for the detection system.
