Abstract
We have carried out wavefront aberration measurement with the reduction projection of an aperture on the pupil of the test microlens set in the interferometer optics. The size of the image of the aperture determines the effective aperture of the microlens, and proposes aperture restriction methods to reduce the influence of the Fresnel diffraction. Wavefront aberrations were measured and evaluated by the use of phase shift method applied to the Mach-Zehnder interferometer. We studied if we can form an image of an aperture stop on the pupil plane of the test microlens. The evaluation of the effect of the aperture on the fringe quality was evaluated through the prototype equipment using the microlens of less than 30 micrometers in diameter. In this paper, we describe the method of reducing the measurement error of wavefront aberration using the effective diameter of the microlens.
