The CaliBall II is used in horizontal interferometer set ups and is held in a Zygo type 4” bayonet mount that provides the adjustments to align the CaliBall II to the transmission sphere. 

Details of the CaliBall™ II package:

  • The CaliBall™ II comes with all the same components as CaliBall™ I but it is better suited for use with horizontal looking interferometers that are equipped with a Zygo style 4” bayonet mount with x-y-z adjustments
  • CaliBall™ II does not need a separate x-y-z mount because the bayonet mount performs this function

The Random Ball Test* has been reviewed in papers by authors at both NIST and CSIRO who conclude they are not aware of a better method of transmission sphere calibration. 
(See papers about the Random Ball Test under Technical Papers)

*The Random Ball Test is not reliable for calibrating transmission spheres slower than about f/7.

Case Studies & Testimonials

  • "We are enjoying our Point Source Microscope and finding it invaluable in alignment and diagnostic tasks."

    Dr. John Mitchell
    Senior Optical Metrologist
    Glyndwr Innovations Ltd., St. Asaph, Wales, UK

     

  • "Just wanted to share a recent success aligning an adaptive optics test bed with the PSM. We used to use a traditional alignment telescope in the past, but the PSM made the whole process really easy and fast. The main requirements were to quickly determine the quality of beam collimation and pupil conjugates since there are several beam expanders and compressors with multiple pupil and focal planes."
