## Calculation of the Vertex Radius of an Off Axis Parabolic Surface using the Sag Measured with a Three Ball Spherometer (ABSTRACT)

ABSTRACT: A paper by An and Parks describing a method of calculating the vertex radius of an off-axis parabolic segment using a three ball spherometer to measure the sag. The vertex radius is found by solving a set of six simultaneous, non-linear equations for the three coordinates of the ball centers and the corresponding three coordinates of the point of contact of the ball with the parabolic surface.

## Dual Light Source Microscope For Inspection of Micro-Optics (ABSTRACT)

ABSTRACT: Desription of using both the single mode fiber (SMF) point source and the full field LED source of the Point Source Microscope (PSM) for the inspection of the surfaces of micro-optics including surface defects and tool marks.

## Swing Arm Optical Coordinate-Measuring Machine: High Precision Ground Aspheric Surfaces using a Laser Triangulation Probe (ABSTRACT)

ABSTRACT: A paper by Wang, et. al., describing a swing arm optical coordinate-measuring machine (SOC), a spherical profilometer, with a distance measuring triangulation sensor for in situ measurement of the topography of ground surfaces. Precise measurement of ground surfaces speeds their figure correction and subsequently reduces total grind and polish time.

## The Structure Function as an Optical Surface Specification (ABSTRACT)

ABSTRACT: A tutorial paper on how to use the structure function as a specification (SF) to limit the effects of mid-spatial frequency roughness. It also points out that the SF units of measurement are familiar to opticians and optical engineers and that it is easy to calculate the SF without making ambiguous assumptions as opposed to the use of Power Spectral Density (PSD).

• ### "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."
