I thought Steve might post yesterday but since he has
We rotated the mirror 180 degrees Yesterday. We could
not see any artifacts that rotated. The largest
artifacts stayed in the same place. So they are
caused by the mask. I'm working to make an
adjustable slit for the camera. The test resolution
depends the slit width. Our current slit does not work
well. Maybe when we get it under control we will have
better data. I'm not hopefull.
This test is a little easier to setup that 2D harman
but doing it seems very hard to me. You have two
slits that must be parallel to one another and must be
adjusted to .004 inch wide. Then one has to be moved
across the beam will the other is stationary. The one
that moves has to be positioned on the first side
diffraction image. It requires a good stage which I
have but a standard Foucault setup would fail.
On the other hand...
My interferometer data for this mirror does change
sign when rotating 90 degrees. So it does pass that
