Author Affiliations +
The aim of this work is to design an interferometric system that will adapt the shape of the reference wavefront to the shape of the measured optical surface. The designed adaptive two-beam interferometer uses the electromagnetic deformable mirror MiraoTM52 from ImagineEyes for a generation of the reference wavefront and it can be applied for measurements of flat and spherical surfaces and even for measurements of free-form surfaces. We perform a detailed analysis of this technique and several possible measurement setups and principles of measurement and calibration of the designed adaptive interferometer are described. The principle of measurement is shown on an example of the experimental set-up of the adaptive interferometer in our laboratory.
