Abstract

An interferometric alignment technique developed for the assembly of microchannel relay systems is described. The method uses pairs of diffractive lenslets that are arranged to form compact in situ interferometers. The relative transverse, longitudinal, and rotational alignment of the two lenslet arrays can be quantitatively determined from the resulting interference patterns. The theoretical analysis is compared with the experimental performance. © 1997 Optical Society of America.
