Abstract

We introduce a novel phase-shifting pixellated interferometer based on a liquid-crystal spatial light modulator and simulate the expected performance. The phase-shifted frames are captured simultaneously, which reduces problems arising from vibrations and air turbulence. The liquid-crystal spatial light modulator is flexible and can be configured to provide a large number of phase-shift levels and geometries to reduce measurement error.
