Visualization of surface figure by the use of Zernike polynomials
- Evans, C. J., Parks, R. E., Sullivan, P J. and Taylor, J. S.
Commercial software in modern interferometers used in optical testing frequently fit the wave-front or surface-figure error to Zernike polynomials; typically 37 coefficients are provided. We provide visual representations of these data in a form that may help optical fabricators decide how to improve their process or how to optimize system assembly.
