Paper Abstract

Axicon elements are used in cylindrical optical systems such as high-power chemical lasers. Interferometric tests of such elements cannot be interpreted by standard methods. Axicon aberrations of cone error and decenter error are defined to help interpret such interferograms. A preprocessing option was added to FRINGE to treat axicon data. An example interferogram has been analyzed.
