Abstract

In this paper, we give a solution to the irradiance transport equation (ITE) using the two-dimensional (2D) Legendre polynomials (LPs) and an interpolator (i-LP) based on the LP. In the first place, we analyze the experimental data; subsequently, we proceed to fit the most probable 2D LPs’ surface to the data in order to obtain the wavefront surface (W(x,y) of the elements under test) as a solution of the ITE differential equation associated with a boundary problem; and finally, we interpolate the resulting fitting. The interpolation is built from LP to increase the resolution and sharpness of the data. We apply the ITE to these results in order to obtain the wavefront as a nondeterministic solution that increases the resolution of the ITE as an optical test, and we compare our results regarding the obtained aberration surfaces (AS(x,y)).
