Abstract

A method for reconstructing wavefront aberrations from intensity measurements in the focal plane of a focusing optic is presented. This reconstruction method is simple, fast, and accurate in reconstructing wavefront aberrations because it uses the inverse Fourier transform of an intensity distribution in the focal plane with a reference electric field. The validity of the reconstruction method is demonstrated by computing a wavefront aberration from the intensity distributions in the focal plane.
