Abstract

Wavefront sensors are usually based on measuring the wavefront derivatives. The most commonly used approach to quantitatively reconstruct the wavefront uses discrete Fourier transform, which leads to artifacts when phase objects are located at the image borders. We propose here a simple approach to avoid these artifacts based on the duplication and antisymmetrization of the derivatives data, in the derivative direction, before integration. This approach completely erases the border effects by creating continuity and differentiability at the edge of the image. We finally compare this corrected approach to the literature on model images and quantitative phase images of biological microscopic samples, and discuss the effects of the artifacts on the particular application of dry mass measurements.
