Abstract

Fritz’s method [Opt. Eng. 23, 379 (1984)] of using Zernike polynomials to assess the absolute planarity of test plates is revisited. A refinement is described that takes into account the data decorrelation that appears in experiments. An uncertainty balance is defined by propagation of error contributions through the steps of the method. The resultant measuring procedure is demonstrated on a data set from experiments, and a nanometer level of uncertainty is achieved.
