Abstract

An exact multishear zonal algorithm is proposed to reconstruct two-dimensional wavefronts in frequency domain. The algorithm maintains the advantage of fast Fourier transform and loosens the “natural extension” requirement that the shear amounts must be divisors of sampling points N; therefore, it can be rapidly executed for large data arrays. The effect of tilt errors in multishear interferometry is analyzed and compensated in our method. The presented algorithm is applicable for a general aperture shape by using an iterative method. Application of large shears is allowed, and high resolution of the reconstructed wavefront can be achieved. Results of numerical simulations demonstrate the capability of our method.
