This course provides an overview of the basic principles, terms, and standards that are necessary for someone specifying optical elements.
This course provides attendees with an introduction to ISO 10110, the international standard for optics drawing notations, and the American adaptation of it.
The course begins by defining the terms and parameters used to control surface texture in the modern optical manufacturing world. It also covers the key factors associated with surface texture and roughness on optical surfaces, and how to understand their impact in optical system performance.
This course provides attendees with an introduction of ISO 10110, the international standard for optics drawings and notations. The course discusses the context of optics drawings and the fundamentals of the ISO 10110 drawing layout. It will also cover the tolerance notations for glass parameters, surface wave front, wedge, and surface texture and coating.
This hands-on workshop with allow attendees to learn the “Best Practice” for inspecting optical surfaces. The course has many demonstrations and labs and gives attendees lots of practice handling and inspecting optics with the oversight of a trained master inspector.
This course provides attendees with an understanding of the source of ambiguity in surface imperfection specifications and provides the context needed to properly specify surface imperfections using a variety of specification standards, and to evaluate a given optic to a particular level of surface imperfection specification.
