Abstract
In this paper, the influence of surface micro-deformations of optical elements on an imaging quality of optical systems is studied. The discussed optical elements are made up of metal, glass or plastic material which are manufactured by a point machining (a turning operation), optical elements that are moulded from glass or plastic material and optical elements that are manufactured by classical technology, etc. The surface micro-deformations of optical elements surfaces are sources of optical aberrations which can decrease an imaging quality. As an imaging quality criterion of optical systems it is considered Strehl definition which describes in adequate way optical systems loaded by small aberrations. A detailed theoretical analysis of the influence of micro-deformations basic types on a value of the Strehl definition is introduced. New relations for a determination of acceptable optical elements micro-deformations are derived.
