Focusing and imaging optics can be characterized by evaluating the wavefront error of the focused beam. We have bean developing a ptychographic phase retrieval method using a visible laser to measure the wavefront error. In this study, the measurement accuracy of the method is increased by improving both the phase retrieval algorithm and the experimental setup. The system is applied to the characterization of an ellipsoidal mirror used for the focusing of soft X-rays. The posture of the mirror can be measured with a resolution of 1.4 μrad. The wavefront error originating from the surface profile error can be detected with an accuracy of 0.01λ (root mean square).
