Paper Abstract

The best surface testing of large optical components frequently requires large auxiliary test optics which are expensive. One example is the testing of a large primary mirror in autocollimation. A method has been developed which allows the testing of large optics using subaperture interferometric testing. Sufficient subaperture profiles are obtained to cover the entire surface. Then these subaperture profiles are combined into a unified profile of the mirror's surface.
