Paper Abstract

A new technique for precise focal length measurements by use of a hologram is presented. The hologram is used in first order diffraction to emulate the reflective properties of a convex spherical mirror when performing null tests with a phase-shifting interferometer. The hologram, comprised of concentric reflective rings (much like a Fresnel zone plate), is written lithographically and offers a higher degree of precision, at lower cost, than its spherical mirror counterpart and many other potential measurement techniques.
