Abstract

To increase the accuracy of wave-front evaluation, we propose to exploit the natural capability of multiple lateral shearing interferometers to measure simultaneously more than two orthogonal phase derivatives. We also describe a method, based on Fourier-transform analysis, that uses this multiple information to reconstruct the wave-front under study.
