Abstract
ITF is usually over looked during the deflectometry measurements, especially when low spatial frequency errors are the main test focus. However, real data shows that the effect of ITF cannot be ignored to reach high accuracy measurements of high spatial frequency features. We illustrated with simulation that ITF of SCOTS is proportional to the camera imaging MTF. We then applied this result to the edge measurement data of a large mirror, where a better agreement is achieved between SCOTS test and a test-plate interferometric test after the compensation. Experimental verification of the ITF theory for deflectometry is preliminary performed. The results will be summarized in our following paper.
