Paper Abstract

The double expansion of wavefront deformation in Zernike polynomials over pupil and field-of-view coordinates is a powerful tool for lens design, testing and alignment. It provides a compact description of wavefront deformation of centered and decentered optical systems over the field-of-view. Understanding the structure of this expansion provides a solution for determining the optimum position and minimum number of field-of-view points for wavefront approximation. This can significantly reduce the computational burden of lens design and is especially important for time consuming wavefront testing before lens alignment.
