Abstract

The accuracy of interferometric measurements made with a nonnull configuration is degraded by test-dependent aberrations. Calibration of the data can be done with reverse optimization methods. An iterative reverse optimization process that improves efficiency and eliminates sensitive merit function weighting issues is described. The process is shown to calibrate a nonnull interferometric measurement of a wave front with more than 200 waves of departure to an accuracy of 0.16 waves peak to valley and 0.02 waves rms.
