Abstract

The test of a mirror by the Ronchi method has shown to be very useful for testing concave aspherical mirrors. The analysis of a Ronchi pattern in order to find the experimental deviations of a given mirror whose theoretical shape is known, and the accuracy that can be obtained are described here.
