14 July 1986 Micro-Optics: Aspects Of Design, Specification, And Manufacture
Author Affiliations +
With the development of laser diodes and fiber optics, the field of micro-optics has greatly expanded both in the type and volume of micro-optics produced. From a historical standpoint, micro-optics were first developed for microscopes and the design and fabrication of microscopic objectives is a well developed process. A good reference on the fabrication of microscope objectives is W. Zschommler's book "Precision Optical Glass Working". 1 More recently, endoscopes have developed and evolved from periscopic type designs to those utilizing selfoc rod lenses.
