Results of the application of wavelet transform for signal processing in white-light interferometry are reported. The mother wavelet frequency is chosen to be the light-source correlogram 1’s, and accurate phase measurements are obtained from simple correlation computations. The fringe envelope is also addressed and permits a complete analysis of coherence-limited fringe patterns. Miscalibrations of phase shift and mean wavelength are also considered.
