Modified Matching Ronchi Test to Visualize Lens Aberrations
Hassani, Kh; Ziafi, H. Hooshmand
European Journal of Physics, v32 n5 p1385-1390 Sep 2011
We introduce a modification to the matching Ronchi test to visualize lens aberrations with simple and inexpensive equipment available in educational optics labs. This method can help instructors and students to observe and estimate lens aberrations in real time. It is also a semi-quantitative tool for primary tests in research labs. In this work by comparing a single lens with a doublet, we can clearly demonstrate the superior quality of the doublet over the single lens, and estimate their conic constants. (Contains 5 figures.)
