Abstract

A simple optical system consisting of two small lenses can be designed to take the place of a large flat in testing paraboloidal mirrors. Other aspheric concave mirrors can also be tested in this manner. The procedure for computing such a null corrector and the accuracy required in its manufacture and use are discussed.
