Paper Abstract

The fabrication and testing of a corrector mirror for a reflective Schmidt camera is to be presented. With a reflective corrector, the incident beam has to be off-axis. The corrector is tilted at an angle of 30 degrees with the optical axis to implement this requirement. The figure of the corrector, which composes of the toric term, rotational symmetrical and rotational nonsymmetrical aspherical terms, poses a certain degree of challenge for fabrication. The total correction is 46 waves peak to valley at 632.8 nm wavelength.
