Abstract
A versatile and portable instrument for stray light detection and diagnosis at both visible and infrared wavelengths will be designed, built, and demonstrated. The core idea of the proposed approach is to use subaperture, rather than full aperture, illumination for stray light detection. The subaperture approach uses a scanning pencil beam (SPB) that provides information about the location of a stray light defect, accelerating diagnosis of the stray light defect. The use of subaperture illumination in the SPB results in a smaller test instrument making a portable instrument possible.
