Paper Abstract

Many optical systems need to be evaluated but they cannot be disassembled to test the imaging lens separately. Then, they have to be tested in a retroreflecting configuration, frequently called double-pass. A typical example of this procedure is in the optical eye. In this manuscript we will describe the different possibilities that might exist when these tests are performed. The main differences are due to the different optical properties of the surfaces on which the image is formed. We will describe the different system conditions and how they can be evaluated and implemented.
