Paper Abstract

We present a ray trace through the sphere in support of sub-aperture testing of the shape of a transparent sphere, used as a volume (density) standard. The radius of curvature for a sub-aperture may be determined after finding zero for the defocus aberration, localizing the back focal plane.
