Innovations in Lens Measurement

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

An increasing demand for aspheres and freeform optics means that manufacturers must come up with evermore ingenious ways to measure the nonuniform lens.

MARIE FREEBODY, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR, [email protected]

Automobile cameras, telescopes, head-mounted displays, laser-focusing heads and other modern photonic devices incorporate high-grade optics that can perform under extreme environmental conditions. The demand for such lenses means they must be reproduced with the utmost accuracy, placing stringent requirements on lens measurement. While the industry has a mature toolset for evaluating rotationally invariant aspheres, the technologies that pertain to freeform surface metrology are relatively immature. This leaves much room for innovation and disruption. Corning’s aspheres...Read full article
