Abstract

Phase-shifting interferometry with a Fourier fringe analysis technique is implemented to analyze Talbot interferometric fringes and to evaluate the focal length of a lens. A four-step algorithm is used to obtain the phase map of the lens. The slope of the phase map is related to the focal length, and it is from this relationship that we evaluate the focal length. Experimental results are presented. Our experimental study suggests that phase-shifting Talbot interferometry combined with a Fourier fringe analysis technique can be advantageously used to improve the accuracy of measurement.
