Paper Abstract

We developed a computer program that uses Newton's method to calculate the shape of a secondary mirror which corrects the spherical aberration of a spherical primary mirror. For each user selected ray, the program calculates the distance from the ideal surface to a user defined conic surface. A set of distances can be used as spline deformations in ACCOS V*, accelerating the optimization of the two mirror system by more than an order of magnitude.
