Gram–Schmidt orthonormalization of Zernike polynomials for general aperture shapes

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We present analytical derivations of aberration functions for annular sector apertures. We show that the Zernike functions for circular apertures can be generalized for any aperture shape. Interferogram reduction when Zernike functions were used as a basis set was performed on annular sectors. We have created a computer program to generate orthogonal aberration functions. Completely general aperture shapes and user-selected basis sets may be treated with a digital Gram–Schmidt orthonormalization approach.
