Paper Abstract

Two methods of calibrating an interferometer for testing cylindrical surfaces are tested experimentally. One method uses a tilting mirror instead of the test specimen and combines at least two measurements at different angles. The other method adds together three measurements. In two of them a cylindrical specifmen is used. In the third one the specimen is replaced by a roof mirror. Results of both methods are computed. They show a reproducibility of (lambda) /50 and an accuracy of (lambda) /20 for the absolute surface deviations of a cylindrical specimen.
