This Technical Report gives terms and definitions and describes techniques for the characterization of wavefronts influenced by optical systems and optical components. It describes basic configurations for a variety of wavefront sensing systems and discusses the usefulness of tests in different situations. The aim is to cover practical instruments and techniques for measuring the wavefronts produced by optical systems and optical components. This Technical Report includes various implementations of the Hartmann method, the curvature sensor and applications of the knife-edge method. The use of interferometers is discussed. This Technical Report also includes techniques such as phase diversity and pyramid sensors, currently used in astronomy and being developed for other areas.
