Contemporary technology in optical testing involves the use of computers, software, and video data transfer in addition to establishing an appropriate vibration-free test arrangement. Many unique problems arise in applying these techniques when more than one optical element is required in the test setup. This article discusses some of the realities and frustrations involved in carrying out a very difficult optical testing task. The intent here is to provide some tips and suggestions that will be of use to others attempting similar work.
