Abstract

We describe a simple method for measuring the radius of curvature by using Talbot interferometry in a noncollimated light beam. This scheme can also be used to determine the focal length of the collimating lens employed in the setup. Results of the measurements are presented. A discussion of achievable accuracies and the proper choice of parameters is included.
