The effects of the global surface curvature on Makyoh-topogaphy imaging




The effects of the global curvature of the reflecting surface on Makyoh (magic-mirror) topography imaging is analysed based on a geometrical optical model. It is shown that the effects can be taken into account by introducing an equivalent screen-to-sample distance which is a function of the real screen-to-sample distance and the global curvature. The special limiting cases are discussed and analysed for practical applications.
