For the first time we offer an additional seminar for practical training on the design of freeform optics under the direction of Prof. Herbert Gross from Jena University and with experts from the Fraunhofer IOF, who represent the questions of fabrication. The seminar can be booked either individually or combined with the workshop ›Ultra Precision Manufacturing of Aspheres & Freeforms‹. For combined bookings you benefit from special conditions. 

Topics: Freeform surfaces ⋅ Design principles ⋅ Tolerancing ⋅ Assembly and adjustment simulation ⋅ Manufacturing of freeforms ⋅ Characterization of freeform surfaces


PROGRAM & AGENDA

→ Day 1

Welcome and introduction
Motivation, overview, definition and applications

Freeform surfaces
Description, properties, benchmark, options, handling in ZEMAX

Simple example systems

Welcome dinner

→ Day 2

Further examples
Refractive systems

Tolerancing
General properties, real surface description, MSF and PSD

Assembly and adjustment simulation 
Reference marks, position adjustment

Manufacturing of freeforms
Fabrication methods, reflective vs. refractive, accuracy

Characterization of freeform surfaces
Metrology of surfaces, typical residual deviations, mid-spatial frequencies


SEMINAR DIRECTOR

The lecturer's team is led by Herbert Gross, an internationally renowned expert in the field of optical system design with industry experience of more than 30 years in leading positions in photonics and a professorship. His research deals with optical systems, their design, modelling, simulation and performance evaluation as well as metrology and realization aspects


TRAINING CONCEPT & PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

The focus of the seminar will be practical training with a lot of exercises. Participants should have experience in the handling of optical design Software OpticStudio/Zemax and a basic knowledge in optical design. Please bring your own notebook with a current OpticStudio program version. Software can not be provided.


VENUE

Seminar venue is the Abbe Center of Photonics at the Science Campus Beutenberg in Jena.
