Abstract
Recent technological advances in optical production methods have given the optical designer greater freedom in being able to solve problems in imaginative ways using devices that may not hitherto have been possible to construct. Complex opto-mechanical components can now be produced to a degree of precision that allows simplification of the overall systems design. In addition, new materials offer many optical systems the possibility of a wider scope of use. Several such components are reviewed, with particular reference to the methods of production and the way in which they contribute to providing novel infra-red systems.
