A method for reducing errors in aspherical mirror testing using a computer-generated hologram (CGH) is described. By using a modified filtering method the carrier frequency in the CGH can be reduced by two-thirds, and the resulting error due to distortion is only one-half of that of a conventional CGH. By adopting a Fizeau-type optical setup, only the surface quality of the reference affects the measured results.
