Paper Abstract

In order to measure the quantitative surface characteristics of large aperture optics conveniently, a digital knife-edge is formed based on the combination of traditional knife-edge, CCD image processing and computer aided calculation, which includes knife-edge positioning with image processing and introduces parameter PSD to describe frequency spectrum. Quantitative digital measurement of knife-edge is realized and surface characteristics of &nullset;150mm and &nullset;125mm spherical mirror is obtained with an accuracy up to 0.12λ(λ=532nm). In the meantime, the testing error, especially the tilt error is analyzed. Compared with testing results of interferometer, the digital knife-edge testing technology is verified available and the data useful for calculating geometric aberration and provides theoretical bases for surface modifying.
