Abstract

To extract phase distributions, which evolve in time using phase-shifting interferometry, the simultaneous capture of several interferograms with a prescribed shift has to be done. Previous interferometric systems aimed to fulfill such a task were reported to get only four interferograms. It is pointed out that more than four suitable interferograms can be obtained with an interferometer that uses two windows in the object plane, a phase grid as a pupil, and modulation of polarization for each diffraction orders in the image plane. Experimental results for five, seven, and nine interferograms are given.
