Abstract

The Ronchi grating is applied to measure the large-aperture aspheric surfaces in a quantitative way on the basis of self-made software which includes Ronchi null grating design, collection of Ronchi graph, and data processing. The measured concave parabolic mirror has a diameter of 630 mm and an F number of 1.34. The measurement result is approximately the same as that of the ZYGO interferometer. This analysis software and test method establish a good foundation for the quantitative measurement of the big error about the large-aperture aspheric surfaces of the next generation telescope.
