Abstract

A phase shift selection method is proposed to design algorithms immune against phase shift errors in two-step generalized phase-shifting interferometry. A general formula for wavefront reconstruction error is derived, and its specific expressions for two common errors are also given. Calculation results suggest that the proper range of phase shift for general application is about from 0.5 to 2.0 rad for both the fixed and linear phase shift errors. Computer simulations have demonstrated the effectiveness of this phase shift selection method by decreasing the wave reconstruction errors to one-fifth.
