Paper Abstract

The usage of stitching technologies in the interferometrical precision optics measurement technique becomes more and more popular. There exist already a few metrology stages providing the stitching principle, such as, for example, the well known Sub-Aperture Stitching Interferometer for Aspheres (SSI-A1) [1] [2] [3] from QED technologies. For measurements with the SSI-A the greatest measurable diameter of the test object is approximately 280 mm [1]. As a consequence the University of Applied Sciences Deggendorf develops an own measuring system in order to test large telescope mirrors with a diameter of more than one meter which should be ready for application in 2012. The expected positioning accuracy of the measuring patches is significantly lower in comparison with the high-accurate SSI-A. Therefore a cross-correlation based translation detection tool is implemented in our current software solution. Since the metrology system is currently being established the SSI-A and the μPhase2 interferometer from TRIOPTICS are used as input data sources for the software development. Further this paper discusses the robustness of the translation detection tool and presents a stabilisation method of the stitching result with the aid of physical markers.
