Abstract

An angular/rotary shearing interferometer for measurement of spatial coherence is described. This interferometer is analogous to that proposed by Armitage and Lohmann for use in measurement of aberrations in optical elements. Using copper vapor laser oscillators with various resonators and master-oscillator power-amplifier systems, beams having a large variety of coherence properties are formed.
