Paper Abstract

Spherical-reference objectives, retrace error correction and environmental (vibration) compensation are incorporated into a scanning white light microscope to enable high-precision measurements of precision optics over a mid-spatial frequency range from 1 and 500 mm-1. The complete metrology platform with automated calibration and positioning demonstrates a measurement repeatability of less than 65pm, while achieving a global uncertainty of less than 100pm for surfaces up to 450mm in size and aspheric departures up to 2 &mgr;m/mm. Keywords: Interferometry, optics, aspheres, metrology.
