Paper Abstract

The Stellar Interferometry Mission (SIM) and particularly one of its testbeds require compound optical pieces the construction and qualification of which, in turn, require very high-precision absolute surface metrology gauges. In this paper, the details of the design, construction and performance of a triplet of interferometers capable of performing the required measurements are presented.
