The use of computer generated holograms for the testing of aspheric wavefronts is described. An analysis of the errors produced by emulsion movement, incorrect hologram size and position, and distortion in hologram plotter and photoreduction lens is given, and it is shown that all the errors are proportional to the slope of the aspheric wavefront. Experimental results verifying the error analysis are shown for testing rotationally nonsymmetric wavefronts having slopes as large as 125 waves per… CONTINUE READING
