Optical System Inspection

Measuring lens centering, air spacing and center thickness inside an assembled optical system is now possible with a single instrument. The OptiCentric 3D from Trioptics GmbH offers optomechanical characterization of assembled optical systems. It integrates various lens analysis technologies and provides a tool for the evaluation of complex optical systems in R&D or routine quality inspection applications in production. The two-in-one solution for the detailed investigation of assembled objective lenses combines the OptiCentric centering error measurement technology with a low-coherence interferometer called OptiSurf, measuring the air gaps between lens surfaces and the center thickness of lenses within the optical system. The cross-interaction of both measurement systems enables fast alignment of the lens system, increases measurement accuracy and provides detailed manufacturing quality information.

center thickness
The lens thickness measured at the optical axis.
An instrument that employs the interference of lightwaves to measure the accuracy of optical surfaces; it can measure a length in terms of the length of a wave of light by using interference phenomena based on the wave characteristics of light. Interferometers are used extensively for testing optical elements during manufacture. Typical designs include the Michelson, Twyman-Green and Fizeau interferometers. The basic interferometer components are a light source, a beamsplitter, a reference...
