16 September 1993 Parametric investigations of mounting-induced axial contact stresses in individual lens elements
Author Affiliations +
Analytical techniques for estimating the axial contact stress in a single element lens mechanically clamped near its rim have previously been described. In this paper, we present a progress report on an ongoing investigation of the effects upon this stress of changing the interface type, the geometric parameters and dimensions of the design or the materials used. The sensitivity of the design of temperature changes also is discussed. From the trends shown here, the optomechanical engineer can predict approximately what consequences might be expected if various parameters are changed during the design phase.
