Paper Abstract

This work reports on the computation of the average phase of a beam over an optical element via discrete Fourier transform techniques. The objective is to develop accurate diffraction models for the Space Interferometry Mission (SIM). Applications related to SIM include calibration of metrology measurements, evaluation of cornercube diffraction effects, and others. The algorithms that are used to compute the field are described and numerical tests that assess their accuracy are presented.
