Abstract

A common mathematical model is established for the Ronchi and Hartmann tests and for interpretation of the Ronchigrams as level curves of the components of the transversal aberrations. With the same point of view, a Hartmanngram is regarded as two 90° crossed null Ronchi gratings. A simple and direct method is also developed for calculating Ronchigrams for the cases of centered and off-axis conic sections with the point light source at any location.
