Abstract

The Fresnel diffraction pattern of a grating periodically gives an exact reproduction of the grating. By superposing a second grating on such an image, we form a Moiré pattern that depends upon the degree of parallelism of the incident beam. We present here the possibility of using this technique for studying the focusing errors in a collimating lens or a mirror.
