Abstract

A compact in-line radial shearing interferometer using laser as a light source is presented. The interferometer is made out of a cube-type beam splitter so that the two opposite surfaces are generated with different curvatures while the normal to the entrance and exit surfaces are in the same line. The interferometer is simple to make and easy to align. Aberration analysis of the interferometer is also presented. Some applications of the interferometer for testing lenses and infrared optical systems and for accessing the quality of an emerging wave front from the exit slit of a monochromator are suggested.
