OptiDomes are six-inch diameter concentric F/0.53 spherical fused silica domes manufactured by Optimax Systems Inc.
The purpose of these domes is to act as a standard for metrology testing of various testing methods for measuring the
surface quality, mechanical attributes and/or the transmitted wave front error of hemispherical/spherical domes. Each of
the OptiDomes was fabricated to pre-specified quality levels including domes that have induced errors. This paper gives
additional manufacturing information, detailed handling instructions, procurement information as well as initial
