Paper Abstract

We consider optical systems with residual peak to valley wavefront errors below 150 nm. The interference figure for λ = 633 am may then be adjusted and photographed as to hold out at every point of the image of the pupil a one to one rolaionship betwonn the optical density of the interferogram and the magnitude of the wavefront error. An enduring interference figure is secured by means of a tiny reflecting aluminized spot on a hare substrate located on the image of a distant point source. We investigate how subsequent photoreproduction of an interferogram upon a photoresist coating may act as a transmitting or reflecting wavefront corrector.
