Solution for Best Fitting Spherical Curvature Radius and Asphericity of Off-Axis Aspherics of Optical Aspheric Surface Component
This study aimed to establish the coordinate transformation between the off-axis aspherics coordinate system σ and the axial symmetry aspherics coordinate system σ by transforming coordinates and present the computation models of asphericity in rectangular coordinate system and cylindrical coordinate system respectively. The asphericity expressions in both coordinate systems were applicable to the comparative sphere calculation of Off-axis aspherics with different figures. We selected an Initiation sphere in view of technology, along with equations in a right coordinate system for certain caliber and structure. Then, by numerical computation, we selected the best fitting sphere and simplifed the complex models by choosing a right coordinate system. At last, the solution for asphericity and the best fitting sphere curvature radius of off-axis aspherics were introduced by examples.
