Abstract
Two modifications of two-wavelength interferometry method are suggested for testing severely distorted mirrors in adaptive optics. One of them is conventional modification demanding optical phase measurements at two light wavelengths. Two diode lasers generating in mid-IR spectral range at room temperature and sparse-array photodetectors are used in this case. Another modification is method of two-wavelength dynamic holography. IN last case optically addressed liquid-crystal spatial light modulator is supposed to be used as a dynamic hologram. It is shown that the proposed modifications of the two-wavelength interferometry method are perspective for testing severely aberrated mirrors with distortions up to 1 mm (that corresponds to 10...20 degree of maximum wavefront local slope in the exit pupil of controllable optical system).
