Paper Abstract

The Fritz's method using Zernike polynomials to assess the absolute planarity of test plates is revisited. Such method is based on four interferometric measurements, which are assumed perfectly correlated. In experiments, due to several instability sources, the data set is missing perfect correlation. Modifications of the Fritz's method are here presented, taking into account the residual uncorrelation of the data; such modified approach is demonstrated on a data set from experiments, achieving nanometer uncertainty level.
