Paper Abstract

The optical tests used for qualifying the Subaru optics are discussed along with their development on other programs. For the primary mirror five separate tests of the optical surface are performed at various stages of the fabrication process. The secondary mirrors will be qualified with a Simpson-Hindle test. Error budgets and calibration techniques are discussed.
