In this paper, we present new phase-shifting algorithms (PSAs) that suppress the ripple distortions and spurious pistons in phase-shifting interferometry. These phase errors arise when non-uniform phase-shifting interferograms are processed with PSAs that assume uniform phase shifts. By modeling the non-uniform phase shifts as a polynomial of the unperturbed phase-shift value ω0, we show that the conditions for eliminating the ripple distortion and the spurious piston are associated with the mth derivative of the PSA’s frequency transfer function (FTF). Thus, we propose an approach to design robust algorithms based on the FTF formalism and we present four ready-to-apply PSAs formulas. Finally, our conclusions are supported by computer simulations.
