Abstract

We describe a modification of the wedge-plate shear interferometer for collimation testing. The surface of the wedge plate is coated to increase the reflectivity such that multiple-beam interference takes place resulting in sharp fringes. In addition to sharpening the fringes also tend to split when the test beam is noncollimated. This splitting has been used as a test criterion for collimation testing. Experimental results are presented.
