abstract

Machining of aspheres represents an extra field in the manufacturing of optical components. The deviation from the sphere has a big impact on machining and testing equipment, tools and technologies, achievable specifications and costs. The production of aspheres deals with special problems such as mid-spatial frequency errors, centering tolerances and slopes, not known in that degree from manufacturing of spheres. Over the past 20 years JENOPTIK Laser, Optik, Systeme GmbH has gained a wide experience of this application area. Recent results give a review on what is required to execute the transition from standard quality to high-precision aspheres, off-axis parts and free forms.
