Course Instructor
SC1019: Mounting of Optical Components
This course introduces the optomechanical engineering principles for the mounting of optical components such as lenses, mirrors, windows, prisms, and filters. Oriented towards practicing engineers and managers, case studies are used to show how mount design is driven by a combination of environmental, performance, and cost requirements. Standard industry practices and common mounting techniques are reviewed, including: • Mounting of lenses into barrels using adhesives or retaining rings • Mounting of prisms and small mirrors using adhesives or clamps • Mounting of assemblies using flexures • Mounting and sealing of windows Without using finite-element analysis (FEA), first-order engineering estimates are used to predict the performance of various mount types.
