Paper Abstract

The shape of an aspherical surface can optically be measured by focusing a small light spot on its surface. Scanning in a line across the surface and going through the apex of the surface, one can interferometrically detect its shape. This paper describes the performance and limitations of such a scanning-spot interferometer. Special attention is paid to the ability to measure very steep aspherical surfaces.
