Paper Abstract

With the rapid developing of science and technology, large aperture optical system plays an important role in the hightech fields including space optics, astronomical optics, inertial confinement fusion, the detecting and recognizing of space target. However, the problems of the wavefront sensing about large aperture optical system has been totally solved because of the equipment expenses and long manufacturing periods. In order to test the large aperture elements in optical system with cheaper costs and higher resolution, more and more attentions are paid into the wavefront sensing of large aperture optical systems. The scanning pentaprism system is introduced to divide the wavefront of the interferometer into a series of sub-wavefront, and the relative positions of the spot centroid accroding to every sub-wavefront are recorded on the CCD camera. The normal directions of every sub-wavefront are obtained to reconstruct the tested wavefront. Experimental results are accord with the interferometer measure results. The feasibility of the pentaprism scanning method has been validated. Finally the influences of measurement apparatus and environment on the measuring precision is discussed. Which is useful to expand the measuring range to keep high spatial resolution and reduce cost.
