Paper Abstract

In order to fit the requirements of aspheric surface testing, a new best-fit sphere definition is proposed. The application and importance of the best-fit sphere definition in aspheric surface testing are analyzed. According to mass simulations, the characteristics of the best-fit sphere are analyzed, and the formulas of its sphere center and radius are given. The analysis indicates that the best-fit sphere definition is directly relative to the manufacture difficulty of CGH and the testing difficulty of aspheric surface to represent the testing difficulty of aspheric surface and reduce the testing dynamic range, and is beneficial to reduce the testing error of laser deflectometry and expand testing range.
