Abstract

A low-cost and fully automated process for phase-shifting interferometry by continuously changing the input voltage of a laser diode under the scheme of a cube beam splitter interferometer, performing as a two-window common-path interferometric setup, is presented. The input signal of a laser diode is controlled by a data acquisition device which permits a change in its wavelength according to its tunability features. The automation and data analysis is done using LabVIEW in combination with MATLAB. By using the Carré algorithm, the phase map is obtained. Measurements of visibility and phase shift to verify the phase-shifting interferometry requirements are also shown.
