Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S2.04
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

We propose an innovative, low coherence probe for rapid measurement of free-form optical surfaces based on a novel method of spectrally controlled interferometry. The key innovations are the use of a new interferometric modality and a novel non-contact optical probe that together measure high surface slope acceptance angles to nanometer sensitiv...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S2.04
Budget: 06/17/15 - 03/31/16

To-date free-form optic manufacture is limited due to inadequate metrology to measure surfaces with free-form and conformal shapes, with large surface slopes and to the required measurement uncertainty. In this proposal we describe a new interferometric non-contact probe capable of measuring free-form optics with nanometer sensitivity. The prob...
