Paper Abstract

The result of an interferometric surface figure measurement is a height map, from which single parametric descriptors (for example the RMS) or residual maps are the most commonly used methods for determining the measurement repeatability. An alternate technique based on a standard deviation matrix is used to better describe the variation among successive measurements. A standard deviation matrix is acquired by computing standard deviation of the height map pixel by pixel. Only one standard deviation matrix can provide a spatial description of the repeatability as well as parametric descriptors (for example the mean) of the standard deviation matrix. Comparative study on the evaluation of measurement repeatability among different methods is shown by both simulation and experiment. It seems that the standard deviation matrix method is more valid to detect the variation than other techniques in the measurement of surface figure.
