Since the coherent noise affected the quality of the Fizeau's interferograms in the large aperture, the coherence of the beam was changed by rotated diffuser to reduce the noise of the interfering system. The relationships among the speed of the rotated diffuser, the contrast of the fringes and the SNR of the system were simulated. Then, the control parameters of rotated diffuser would be required in the optimum interference fringe. The interference images were obtained under different control parameters, and the fringe contrast and system SNR of each image were analyzed. The results showed that the contrast can be reduced by increasing the speed of the rotated diffuser in a certain extent, but the SNR can be improved effectively and it was convenient to process the interference image later.
