Optics Design and Precision Manufacturing Technologies
The aim of this collection was to provide an exciting forum for the exchange of the latest research findings and developments in the fields of optical design, advanced optics manufacturing technology and optical metrology. Approximately 250 papers from over 70 institutes and high-tech organizations in 13 countries were submitted, from which 235 papers were selected for publication in this collection.
These papers cover optical design and fabrication, ultra-precision manufacturing, optical metrology and other related topics. It will be invaluable to industrial production workers and academics everywhere.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Selected from the Proceedings of the Asia Pacific Conference on Optics Manufacture 2007 (co-organized by Tsinghua U. Industrial Technology Research Institute in Taiwan, Harbin Institute of Technology in China, and the U. of Huddersfield in the UK), the 235 peer reviewed papers in this two-volume set present recent research findings and developments in the areas of optical design, advanced optics manufacturing technology, and optical measurement. A few examples of topics addressed include diamond turning freeform optics, machining of micro-structured optical molds, manufacturing process optimizing of lightguiding plate for soft computing, absolute measurement of aspheric surfaces using white-light interferometry, analytical calculation of the light extraction efficiency of micro cavities light-emitting diodes, ultraprecision ductile-regime cutting of optical glass, kinematics calibration of parallel kinematic machine using a developed double-ball bar gauge, effects of the tool angles on the machined surface quality of KDP crystal in diamond turning, laser patterning indium tin oxide thin films on glass substrates, stiffness analysis for a novel parallel-robot based high-precision flexible assembly fixture, and advanced smart high ratio zoom system with global optimization.
