Paper Abstract

A shearing interferometer is proposed for the characterization of microlenses. The optical configuration of the test system enables the measurement of the wave aberrations, the focal length, and the deviations of the lens surface from an ideal sphere. In addition, a quantitative evaluation method is given that enables the calculation of the wave aberrations (e.g., the phase function) from the shearing interferometer data.
