Unconventional Lens Fabrication, Aspheric Surfaces, and Kinos
1010606Unconventional Lens Fabrication, Aspheric Surfaces, and KinosIn Chap. 5 the fabrication methods producing spherical optical surfaces in use for many years were discussed. The methods were applied in the fabrication of visible as well as infrared lenses. Two technical advances brought about a dramatic change. The first was the direct application of computer control of machine tools that led to diamond point turning. The second was the development of inexpensive uncooled infrared detector arra…
