Paper Abstract

We investigate how aspherical optical surfaces engraved in photoresist coatings avail against static wavefront aberrations up to 3 μ. The spherical aberration of a singlet lens is corrected for. The image given by a cassegrainian telescope of 143 mm diameter with a peak to valley 0,62 µ wavefront error and 7" slopes is improved by a 16 mm diameter intrafocal phase equalizer corrector plate. We then discuss extrapolations of our laboratory experiments.
