Paper Abstract

We describe a new method of testing optical surfaces having a very large radius of curvature. The method combines a Fizeau interferometer with a set of specially designed zoom lenses. The zoom lenses make the test setup compact, convenient and flexible in testing optical surfaces having a very large radius of curvature. We review the design of the zoom lenses used for this purpose, and describe their performance, showing that reasonably good reference beams can be provided by these lenses to test optical surfaces having a large and variable range of radii.
