In this work, we compare two techniques to make point-diffraction interferometers (PDI): microlithography and the mercury drop method to know with which of these the best results can be obtained. For the comparison, we used the wavefront generated by a commercial reference surface of /20 analyzing the interference pattern generated by the PDIs, we obtained information from the wavefront generated by the pinhole. Several PDIs were created and analyzed to have a statistical error information of both techniques.
