Paper Abstract

In this work a hybrid algorithm genetic (GA) is proposed in order to obtain the wavefront OPD of experimental interferograms. The method takes as input an experimental interferograms, and it is by solving of an optimization problem in an accurate form that the evolutionary algorithm (GA) performs an automatic polynomial fitting under experimental data. In this way the method gives as output the vector of Zernike aberration coefficients to 5th order that best matches to the analyzed interferograms. It is important to point out that the experimental interferograms analysis was applied to confirm the quality of a manufactured optical surface.
