How to Measure a Wedge
Easily measure optical wedges using the REVEAL metrology software from Äpre Instruments. Through transmission or reflection, you can accurately determine wedge angle, tilt, magnitude, and more to get the job done right.
An Application Note from Äpre teaches how to measure an optical wedge or a group of optical wedges by transmission or reflection. This Note includes the interferometer setup procedure for the wedge test, setting the correct values in Äpre’s REVEAL software to properly measure the wedge, and how to report the data.
The tools need to measure a wedge following this procedure are:
- Transmission or Fizeau Flat (TF)
- Wedge(s) to be tested
- Reference Flat (RF)
- Specific Mount for Wedge (three jaw chuck, for example)
- Appropriate Mount for RF
