Paper Abstract

In order to evaluate either qualitative or quantitatively the shape of fast plano-convex aspheric lenses, a method to design null screens type Hartmann is proposed. The null screens are formed with non-uniform spots, which allows to have uniform images at detection's plane. The screens are printed on a foil sheet and placed in front of the lens under test, they are illuminated with a collimated monochromatic beam propagating along the optical axis, in such a way that through the process of refraction will form a uniform spot patterns which are recorded at a predefined plane of detection. Finally, processing properly its image recorded we could be able to get a quantitative evaluation of the lens under test. The designs of these null screens are based on the equations of the caustic surface produced by refraction. A preliminary test for a fast plano-convex aspheric lens with F=# = 0:8 is presented in this work. This method could also be applied to alignment of optical systems.
