TOM 3 Optical System Design, Tolerancing and Manufacturing

Designing freeform imaging optics based on machine learning

Tong Yang, Wenchen Chen, Dewen Cheng, Yongtian Wang

Beijing Institute of Technology, China, People's Republic of

We proposed design methods of freeform imaging optics based on machine learning. Using a deep-learning-based framework, good starting points can be outputted immediately from a trained artificial neural network based on design requirements and system specifications. Using a reinforcement-learning-based framework, design results with good imaging performance and corresponding design routes can be found automatically. The design experience can be further acquired using the obtained data directly or through other methods such as clustering-based machine learning. Both frameworks reduce dependence on human effort and advanced design skills.

High precision refractive index measurement of optical glass at SCHOTT

Ralf Jedamzik, Uwe Petzold, Fabian Rupp, Lothar Bartelmess

SCHOTT AG, Germany

For refractive index measurement two different measurement setups are common: the v-block refractometer for economic refractive index control up to the fifths digit and the spectral goniometer for high precision index measurement over a broad wavelength range 185 nm to 2325 nm up to the sixth digit. To cope with specific production requirements and a high reliability of the measurements SCHOTT develops its own measurement setups and participates in international round-robin tests on refractive index measurement and in the standardization of refractive index measurement methods for the optical industry.

Investigations on the surface quality of grinded inner contours using different manufacturing strategies on fused silica

Marcel Binder, Sebastian Henkel, Jens Bliedtner

Ernst-Abbe University of Applied Sciences Jena, Germany

The demands on the complexity and accuracy of brittle-hard components (e.g. fused silica) in the field of optical technologies and manufacturing are constantly increasing, which is accompanied by the need to further analyze and optimize modern CNC manufacturing processes. The publication presents investigations on the grinding of internal contours with high aspect ratios, examining the influence of ultrasonic support and various machining strategies, including (ultra) fine grinding using resin-bonded tools.

Impact analysis of temperature and humidity effects on polishing

Polishing optical glass is a complex process involving mechanical and chemical interactions. One mechanical aspect of polishing is the formation of cracks during processing. Within the framework of investigations, the influence of temperature on the formation of scratches on a glass surface is studied.

Likewise, the influence of air humidity and temperature is taken into account during scratch application. In addition we will report on the impact on polishing performance through increasing the chemical reactivity by increasing the slurry fluid temperature.
