Abstract

A previous Letter by Pedrini et al. [Opt. Lett. 30, 833 (2005)] proposed an iterative single-beam wavefront reconstruction algorithm that uses a sequence of interferograms recorded at different planes. In this Letter, the use of relaxation and multiresolution strategies is investigated in terms of accuracy and computational effort. It is shown that the convergence rate of the conventional iterative algorithm can be significantly improved with the use of relaxation techniques combined with a hierarchy of downsampled intensities that are used within a preconditioner. These techniques prove to be more robust, to achieve a higher accuracy, and to overcome the stagnation problem met in the iterative wavefront reconstruction.
