Paper Abstract

A method for the absolute calibration of a flat optical surface is described. An algorithm which utilizes the orthogonal properties of the Zernike polynomials was used on interferometric data to fabricate and certify three 10-inch Zerodur reference flats to λ/100 peak-to-valley quality.
