Abstract
As a high-resolution imaging instrument, angular resolution is the most important index of Lyman-α ultraviolet telescope. In this paper a new allocation and budget method is introduced. An resolution error allocation of surface roughness, figure error and alignment error was developed early in the program. And the allocation was used to guide the design. Though testing the surface roughness and figure error in visible light, the variation of diffraction encircled energy can be obtained by non-sequence model and Zernike coefficients brought into optical design software. The numerical results show that the effective RMS surface roughness of primary and secondary mirrors are 0.49nm and 0.40nm in the spatial frequency from 1/D (D is the diameter of the mirror) to 1/λ (λ is an incident wavelength). And the effects of the surface roughness are both less than 0.1″. The figure error of the primary and secondary mirrors are 0.009λ and 0.007λ (Λλ=632.8nm). The resolution errors which were brought by the figure error are 0.33″ and 0.16″. Then the effect of alignment error on angular resolution was gotten by testing visual resolution. Finally the angular resolution in ultraviolet band can be calculated. The focal length of Lyman-α ultraviolet telescope is 2000mm and the pixel size of detector is 14μm. So the pixel resolution is 1.4″. Experimental results show that the angular resolution of Lyman-α ultraviolet telescope is 0.59″, which is approached to the estimate and meet the requirement.
