Abstract

Lattice design is subtle and complicated for the subaperture stitching test of aspheric surfaces. Methods are described in this paper for the collection and arrangement of subapertures, and calculation of the best-fit sphere for each subaperture. The best-fit sphere is determined by minimizing the mean-square aspheric deviations in the form of a surface integral. Finally, a numerical example is given to illustrate the procedure, and also to verify the validity of our proposed methods.
