It is the task of an optomechanical engineer, starting with a lens design provided by the optical designer, to devise a structure which holds various components of a lens in proper axial and radial alignment. This structure, the lens barrel, must provide a means of interfacing with the customer's system, and must be designed so as to maintain optical and mechanical integrity under a multitude of environmental conditions. This discussion encompasses the design and analysis efforts undertaken by the optomechanical engineer to comply with this requirement. Additionally, some special areas of concern to the optomechanical engineer such as various centration and assembly techniques, cementing of optical components, sealing and leak rate analyses and reliability estimates of lens assemblies are discussed.
