Stitching of Equatorial Profiles for Extended Spatial Range Assessment

Published

Author(s)

P Sullivan, R E. Parks, Lianzhen Shao

Abstract

This paper describes a method for stitching multiple overlapping interferometric measurements of the equator of a high quality sphere to produce a single profile representing the roundness of the ball. The resulting optical profile measurement is compared with one obtained using a mechanical measurement and it is demonstrated that very good agreement exists between the two independent measurements.
