Photonics Spectra
Mar 2007
RPO.jpgA full-color four-page brochure from Rochester Precision Optics outlines the company’s offerings in optical engineering and lens design and in the high-volume production of molded glass aspheres, including multicavity tooling, injection-mounted assembly, glass indices from 1.49 to 1.92 Nd (high temperature glasses) and plano, spherical and aspheric surfaces. Sections describe capabilities in the areas of coatings, prototype optics, precision machining, diamond turning, and assembly and testing. The document notes that lenses are available in a wide range of focal lengths and numerical apertures and that they provide diffraction-limited performance. A chart specifying visible moldable glasses is included.



GLOSSARY
injection-mounted assembly
A process by which a plastic cell is molded around a glass lens or lenses to create a mount, eliminating the metal barrel and the need for glass-to-metal seals.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
