Paper Abstract

A technique has been developed for analyzing the effect on image quality of various optical surface errors. The technique can be applied to surface errors typically seen in optical fabrication, such as rolled edges or zonal errors or discontinuities. The technique allows rapid assessment of surface error effects for known errors as well as for typical errors, and gives insight into the general problem of optimizing aspheric surfaces.
