6.10. In the optical conﬁguration shown in Fig. 6.7a the imaging lens has a focal
length of 100 mm and creates an interference pattern at magniﬁcation V =−1/3.
Assuming the test object is of 50 mm in length and 15 mm in height and the
maximum temperature gradient in it is 25
C/mm, ﬁnd the minimum required
diameter of the lens.
