Abstract
Very recently, in the context of measuring aspheres and complex surfaces with ultra-precision, a particular measurement principle was developed which determines the form (topography) of extended test samples by scanning measurements of curvature, being the reciprocal of the radius of curvature. The curvature sensor must be traceably calibrated with a low uncertainty. This back tracing can be done, first, by measuring radius of full spheres with a highly accurate sphere interferometer, second, by measuring roundness with highly accurate methods, and third, by measuring specially designed calibration aspheres. These procedures for traceably calibrating the curvature sensor will be described.
