Paper Abstract

This paper describes a database of wavefront measurements of large aperture optical components. This database is being compiled as part of our component development program in preparation for the National Ignition Facility (NIF). The data is stored electronically in the form of 3D phase maps of the reflected or transmitted wavefront, measured by phase shifting interferometry at 6328 angstrom. The database will serve both technical and administrative purposes for the NIF project. These purposes will be described, as well as the type of data and measurement techniques used.
