Abstract
Content

An algorithm has been devised to greatly simplify and improve the calibration and the reduction of systematic noise of an imaging interferometer or other similar interferometric instrument. Prior to the advent of this algorithm, such calibration was achieved by means of a conventional "flat-field" correction method that requires uniform illumination of all pixels in the image detector of the instrument. To achieve uniform illumination, it is often necessary to disassemble the instrument to separate the image detector from the instrument optics, taking care to keep all optical and electronic components clean and to restore the original optical alignment upon reassembly.
