Paper Abstract

Multi-element catadioptric systems are aligned after assembly by adjusting a few elements using data from interferograms taken on-axis and at four full-field locations. This method, which is essentially aberration balancing, has proven to be superior to the more traditional method where the alignment of each component is verified as it is added to the system.
