Optical Properties of Aspheric Glass Lens Using DLC Coating Mold


Article Preview

In this research, the optimal grinding condition has been obtained by design of experiment(DOE) for the development of aspheric lens for the 3 Mega Pixel, 2.5x optical zoom camera-phone module. Also, the WC mold was processed by the method of ultra precision grinding under this optimal grinding condition. The influence of DLC coating on form accuracy (PV) and surface roughness(Ra) of the mold was evaluated through measurements after DCL coating using ion plating on the ground mold. Also, aspheric glass lens was molded by before and after the use of the mold of DLC coating, respectively. The optical characteristics of each sample, which were molded by the different mold, were compared with each other.
