Abstract:

The contractor has studied the testing of electro-optic components with special emphasis on diamond-turned optics. The primary purpose of that study was to determine where new government initiatives could be most effective in moving this area forward. Besides an ordered list of recommended government actions, this study has resulted in an extensive survey of experts the most extensive yet made, the largest annotated bibliography in the field, an improved form of Ronchi testing giving quantitative results, a general approach to nonconjugate interferometry, a high accuracy form of multiple-wavelength absolute distance interferometry, and a totally new approach to the generation of test holograms by computer.
