Abstract
An application of the Schlieren test method to evaluate scratches, digs, bubbles, inclusions, or any other kind of optical defects using the same simple equipment is reported. The system can be used in two different configurations, allowing the testing of mirror surfaces (reflection mode) and lenses (transparency mode) as well. The magnification is invariant and gives the opportunity to automatically count or compare defects with standards.
