Paper Abstract

An interferometric technique for aligning a reflaxicon consisting of two separate conical mirrors is presented with emphasis on the techniques for analyzing the interferometer output to extract the required alignment corrections for five degrees of freedom. Error sources for the technique are delineated and analyzed. A computer simulation is described for estimating system performance.
