Paper Abstract

Thermal optical software has been written and used to reduce surface temperature and optical transmission thermal distortion interferometry data. A high reflectance mirror on a fused silica substrate was irradiated by a high intensity laser beam at 1.3 micrometers . Surface temperature and optical transmission data that anchor the software are presented in this paper. In addition, a novel method of computing the optical transfer function from the interferometer data is discussed.
