报告内容: Extreme freeforms in modern imaging systems and an introduction of Optimax precision optics
报告人：Jessica DeGroote Nelson 和 Joseph Spilman
Abstract: Freeform optical shapes or optical surfaces that are designed with non-symmetric features are gaining popularity with lens designers and optical system integrators. Manufacturing and testing details will be discussed for freeforms as well as current manufacturing tolerancing limits. Challenges and future work in manufacturing and testing of extreme freeforms are addressed. The state-of-art precision optics fabrication and coating capability and products of Optimax Systems are introduced. A potential match for high-end optical system manufacturing in China is discussed.
