8 September 1995 Swing-arm profilometry of aspherics
Author Affiliations +
A profilometer is described that utilizes the swing-arm geometry to provide surface profile measurements of large, highly aspheric surfaces. The profilometer measurement is shown to be robust against stiffness and alignment induced errors in the probe motion.
