Abstract

An advanced iterative algorithm is presented to extract phase distribution from randomly and spatially nonuniform phase-shifted interferograms. The proposed algorithm divides the interferograms into small blocks and retrieves local phase shifts accurately by iterations. Therefore, the phase distribution can be calculated with high precision by eliminating the effect of tilts occurring during phase shifting. Simulated results and experiments demonstrate that the proposed algorithm exhibits high precision and converges faster than previous algorithms even when the tilt errors are up to 27.6 % of the normal phase step.
