Author Affiliations +
The paper deals with challenges, solutions and results obtained by JENOPTIK Laser.Optik.Systeme GmbH (JO L.O.S.) while contriving and transferring knowledge gained in the field of manufacturing and testing high-end spherical and plan surfaces into manufacturing of complex optical surface shapes. During the last two years notable progress was made in the field of manufacturing optical components with constantly changing curvature and lack of symmetry by linking selected manufacturing equipment and testing methods to each other. We will show present results reached in industrial manufacturing of complex surface shapes on an accepted level of expanse.
