Abstract

This Letter introduces a polarization phase-shifting Newton interferometer that can be utilized for plane optical surface measurements, a setup constructed to realize the interferometer, and the experimental results from the use of the setup. The results confirm not only the validity but also the feasibility of the interferometer.
