Abstract
To assess the images formed by a lens, we have to know first its focal length and its transfer function, characteristic of the quality of the theoretical focused image. At this time, aberrant lenses cannot be perfectly characterized. Several optical benches have been built in order to measure focal length and MTF of these lenses, but repeatability was very poor. Corneal and Supelec then conceived of a new method based mainly on calculations instead of mechanical device adjustments. A preliminary study proved the feasibility of a new method, which we call the 'speckle' method. Several tests have shown that power and imaging quality were included into the two-dimensional signal measured by a CCD. Mathematical theory was then conceived to assess power and imaging quality with good repeatability. We will present here the theoretical basis of the speckle method, then present the practical bench. Results will be given after a second applied research program, which will be completed by the end of 1994.
