Paper Abstract

The objective of this paper is to describe a new data reduction method for measurement of aspheric surface shape with complementary annular subaperture interferometric method. The approach begins with applying least-square method to estimate the misalignments of each subaperture measurement in the local coordinates and then subtracts the nominal aspheric prescription with the analytical formula. Each subaperture data removed misalignments and nominal surface is represented with the corresponding function defined at discrete points. According to the complementary of the adjacent subapertures, each normalized subaperture data is properly scaled and shifted into the global coordinates. The combination data is further analyzed by the local interpolation and the global Zernike fitting. The experiment results show that the performance on the reconstruction accuracy, computational efficiency and characterizing the higher spatialfrequency information of the new reduction method is better than that of the previously reported reconstruction algorithm with Zernike annular polynomials and matrix method.
