Paper Abstract

The surfaces of diamond machined optics are described in terms of the spatial frequency of the errors. Certain of these errors which are unique to diamond machined optics, such as, the highly correlated errors due to tool advance and the error due to machine centering uncertainty, are discussed in detail. The imaging effects of the errors are derived. A framework for specifying diamond machined optics, based on the imaging effects is presented.
