Paper Abstract

The profile of an optical surface can be measured to nanometre accuracy by integrating slope values obtained by laser autocollimation. An instrument based on this principle for measuring X-ray microscope mirror surfaces of conicoid shape has been developed, and its application to monitoring precision lapping is described. A second system for the measurement of optical flats is also under development.
