Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 15 March 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 32
ICS Code (Optical equipment): 37.020
scope:

This Technical Report gives terms and definitions and describes techniques for the characterization of wavefronts influenced by optical systems and optical components. It describes basic configurations for a variety of wavefront sensing systems and discusses the usefulness of tests in different situations.

The aim is to cover practical instruments and techniques for measuring the wavefronts produced by optical systems and optical components. This Technical Report includes various implementations of the Hartmann method, the curvature sensor and applications of the knife-edge method. The use of interferometers is discussed. This Technical Report also includes techniques such as phase diversity and pyramid sensors, currently used in astronomy and being developed for other areas.

NOTE More information on interferometry can be found in ISO/TR 14999-1, ISO/TR 14999-2 and ISO/TR 14999-3.

This Technical Report explains briefly how these techniques work and includes diagrams illustrating the use of this type of equipment for making the measurements required for ISO 10110-5, ISO 10110-8, ISO 10110-12 (slope requirements) and ISO 10110-14.
