From Event: SPIE Optical Engineering + Applications, 2016
Due to the improving manufacturing processes, freeform surfaces become a serious option within the optical design process. The work presented here was done within the German Regional Growth Core fo+ and involves all steps from optical design to manufacturing and testing. Two approaches for monolithic freeform systems solving the same optical task will be compared with respect to their manufacturability. For this not only surface form deviation but also surface positioning tolerances play an important role. Thus, this will give important hints to what type of optical system is better suited for serial production. The results of this analysis will be presented.
