Paper Abstract

A variant of Kirchhoff's diffraction theory is used to obtain expressions for the light field diffracted from distorted grating patches on curved mirrors. Explicit formulae are obtained for the fields in the vicinity of the wavefront sensor for certain special cases, and numerical calculations of the diffraction pattern are carried out as a function of grating parameters.
