A new interferometer has been developed which combines aspects of a Michelson interferometer with the storage capabilities of holography. The instrument makes it possible to compare interferometrically beams that are not coherent with one another. The instrument was used to measure fidelity of phase conjugation by common mode rejection of aberrators.
