The method to obtain four speckle patterns with relative phase shift of <TEX>${\pi}/2$</TEX> by passive devices such as two waveplates and a linear polarizer, awl to calculate the phase at each point of the speckle pattern in shearography with a Wollaston prism is presented, and the feasibility of the proposed method is theoretically demonstrated by Jones vector.
