Abstract
Corner reflectors are characterized by their accuracy in reflecting light rays in a direction parallel to the direction of incidence. The paper discusses testing the quality of corner reflectors by measuring reflected light wave phase profiles and subsequently computating diffraction patterns to obtain the divergence of returned beams at specified wavelengths.
