ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
An optical design may function excellently in design software but completely miss performance targets in practice or result in poor yields. Understanding the actual manufacturing process allows designers to design and tolerance for manufacturability. Schwertz presents traditional glass lens manufacturing basics, rules of thumb for designing manufacturable lens element geometries, and ways to reduce the sensitivities of designs. Taking extra time early on to consider these details can improve performance and yield while reducing costs in the long run.

***This presentation premiered during the 2021 Photonics Spectra Optics Conference. For information on upcoming Photonics Media events, see our event calendar here.
