Title
Phase retrieval algorithm by fitting ellipses and computing Euclidean Distances
Author
Abstract
This work presents a novel algorithm for phase extraction based on the Euclidean distance from a point to an ellipse, named The Euclidean Distance (ED) method. The ED method avoids the use of the tangent function and under certain conditions may be more accurate than phase-shifting algorithms (PSA). The present ED method involves two important tasks: the first is done by fitting ellipses to intensity data (points) by the method of least squares, and the second is done by computing the Euclidean distance from the intensity points to the fitted ellipse. We developed a numerical simulation to validate our proposal by considering that the background and modulation light are spatial functions varying smoothly. The present algorithm also is applied to experimental interferograms and is compared with a phase-shifting algorithm.
