Abstract

The properties of moiré fringes in Talbot interferometry are analyzed when the angle between the two grating planes is small. The results indicate that the tilt angle of the moiré fringes, observed just behind the test grating, is sensitive to the small angle. Based on this sensitivity, several features of parallelism of the two grating planes are presented, and the influence of the small angle when checking the beam collimation of a lens is also discussed. The validity of the theoretical analysis is illustrated by experiment.
