Measuring Prisms: Multiple Wavefront Channels in One Setup

Prism assemblies are difficult optical elements to measure. Back reflections from multiple surfaces and multiple channels make laser interferometry incapable of making these measurements. Spectrally Controlled Interferometry (SCI), available from Apre Instruments, offers an easy-to-use, accurate method to measure these components for the first time. A laser light source interferometer (for example a laser Fizeau) … Continue reading
