Designing a high-performance lens is only one part of an optical designer's job. The more elusive challenge is often in the tolerancing of that lens and in linking toleranced performance to as-built performance.
Join us for a 45 minute webinar presented by design and manufacturing experts Katie Schwertz and Shelby Ament to learn about the challenges and best practices of designing manufacturable lens assemblies. This webinar will provide background information on how a multi-element lens assembly is manufactured and assembled while providing insights on details that should be taken into consideration in the design and tolerancing stages. Taking extra time early on to consider these details can improve performance and yield, while reducing costs in the long run.
Throughout this webinar, participants will gain insight on the following topics:
Shelby Ament was formerly an Optical Research Engineer at Edmund Optics in the Barrington, New Jersey, USA, office. She was responsible for developing new optical metrology and fabrication techniques to improve Edmund Optics’ manufacturing capabilities. Shelby received her PhD in Optical Science from the College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona and bachelor’s degree in Physics from DePauw University. Her dissertation involved design and fabrication of holograms to improve performance of solar energy systems.
