A lateral shear interferometer based on a double–exposure recording of a hologram of the image produced by a light diffusely scattered by a mat screen and passed through a controllable convex lens is analyzed. It is shown theoretically and experimentally that spatial filtration in the hologram field enables one to control a lens over the field. The spatial filtering in the plane of the image of the mat screen makes it possible to record the interference pattern characterizing the phase distortions introduced in the reference wave by the aberrations in the optical system forming it.
