|Title:||Visualization of Surface Figure Using Zernike Polynomials|
|Published:||December 01, 1995|
|Abstract:||Commercial software in modern interferometers used in optical testing frequently fit the wave-front or surface-figure error to Zernike polynomials; typically 37 coefficients are provided. We provide visual representations of these data in a form that may help optical fabricators decide how to improve their process or how to optimize system assembly.|
