Far-ultraviolet IMaging Spectrograph (FIMS) is a far ultraviolet diffuse imaging spectrometer which will be launched in 2002 as the main payload of KAISTSAT-4. We have designed the optics for observing diffuse emission sources by employing an off-axis parabolic cylinder mirror in front of a slit which guides lights to a diffraction grating. The reflective diffraction grating is an ellipse of rotation providing angular resolution. We describe our plan to measure the off-axis parabolic mirror and our initial experiments to establish the measurement technique. To assist manufacture of the off-axis parabolic cylinder, a cylindrical wavefront generated using computer generated hologram (CGH) will be used during the polishing to check errors in surface profile using the Fizeau interferometer.
