Abstract
Usually the fabrication of a conic or aspheric surfaces begins with the best-fit sphere and by removing the glass surplus the desired aspheric surface can be obtained. If the aspherical surface have a large focal ratio and small conic constant the manufacture process is easy. But when the focal ratio is small or the conic constant is large this process is very hard. We propose to use two-wavelengths interferometry for testing the surface in the grinding process, because with this method is possible to obtain interference fringes of rough surfaces.
