Abstract

Phase retrieval is carried out using sequential intensity measurements of a volume speckle field and a wave propagation equation. Retrieved phases and phase subtraction facilitate the analysis of wavefronts before and after undergoing a small rotation. Angular displacement between incident planar wavefronts is determined from the unwrapped phase difference, phase diffuser aperture diameter, and the light source wavelength. Numerical simulations confirm the experimental results.
