22 August 2017 Measurement of low-order aberrations with an autostigmatic microscope
Author Affiliations +
The addition of a piezo-electric focusing stage and phase retrieval algorithms to a compact, adaptable autostigmatic microscope provides for both improved focus sensitivity during optical system alignment as well as the ability to measure low-order aberrations for system qualification. A description of the instrument and initial results are reported.
