Abstract

The global optimization threshold algorithm is reported to obtain the deformations of an optical surface. The advantage of these types of algorithm is that they can be solved for the correlation problem presented in Seidel polynomials. We obtain the 2D deformations of a surface test with the transversal aberration along one direction only. In order to apply this algorithm we used exact ray tracing to simulate the transversal aberration adapting the same mathematical theory for the Ronchi test. The error obtained in sagitta recovering deformation was 1   μm .
