Title: A method for measuring the radiation wave front by using a three-wave lateral shearing interferometer

Abstract

An analysis of and some corrections to the technique of phase distribution measurement by means of a three-wave lateral shearing interferometer are made. The technique offers high precision and a wide dynamical range; it is also rather simple and handy when applied to various fields. The device for the wave front reconstruction and the data-processing algorithm is described. The results of the model simulation of the wave front meter as well as the experimental results are presented. (laser applications and other topics in quantum electronics)
