Stitching Interferometry: A Flexible Solution for Surface Metrology
The fabrication of large high-quality optics continues to be a challenge, in part because of the difficulty of measuring extensive surface areas. One alternative is to measure many subapertures of the surface and “stitch” the results together to synthesize a full aperture map.
