If budget or time restrictions eliminate the possibility of utilizing custom optics in your application, stock optics are readily available and easily implemented to fit your design requirements. Here are some quick tips to help make designing with off-the-shelf optics easy! 1 SIMPLIFY Start on paper with a paraxial design and break it into subsystems of finite and infinite conjugate optical groups. Determine the focal lengths you want for each group before trying to optimize in a code such as Zemax, Code V®, or another ray tracing software of your choice. Once you have the focal lengths required, you can start using paraxial equations to help choose the off-the-shelf lenses that provide the required focal lengths. Your preferred ray tracing code should have a selection of off-the-shelf lenses built into it (Figure 1) that you can use to model the selected lenses and optimize your spacing. If not, the lenses can typically be input into the software with the information provided by the supplier. All EO TECHSPEC® components are available in most design codes and Zemax files are available on our website at www.edmundoptics.com/zemax 2 GO MONOCHROMATIC If at all possible, use a monochromatic source such as an LED or Laser or use an optical filter to make your system monochromatic. Using a monochromatic or narrow band light will greatly reduce the complexity of the design. As a rough guideline, reducing the source waveband to less than 50nm will generally make using singlets possible in your design. Chromatic aberrations cause difficulty when composing a design, so your options will be simplified if a broadband light source is not required. 3 UTILIZE OFF-THE-SHELF subsystems By using off-the-shelf components such as achromatic doublets, microscope objectives, machine vision lenses, multi-element relays, or other subsystems, you can often achieve your application’s exact correction requirements for factors such as color, field angles, and large apertures. In many cases, these subsystems can even be modeled in your code if the prescriptions are provided by the supplier (Figure 2). Even if the prescription is not available, a paraxial surface can be used to approximate the subsystem. 4 CONSIDER MOUNTING OPTIONS Whether prototyping or trying to save the time and expense associated with purchasing custom housings, consider off-the-shelf mounting options. For example, the TECHSPEC® Optical Cage System allows you to easily assemble your optical components and provide plenty of freedom for making spacing adjustments. Most off-the-shelf cage systems allow for mounting common optical component sizes, as well as ways for mounting microscope objectives, C-mount camera lenses, and other subcomponents. 5 USE COMPONENTS where they work Off-the-shelf lenses such as Plano-Convex (PCX), Plano-Concave (PCV), Double-Convex (DCX), Double-Concave (DCV), and Achromats are optimized for small fields and small apertures. These components work best when integrated into systems that do not have very steep ray angles. For example, when designing a high magnification relay, use a complex multi-element subsystem for the high numerical aperture side of the relay and an achromat for the low numerical aperture side. For instance, a 15X system (Figure 3) consisting of a 20X infinite conjugate objective on the object side and a 150mm focal length achromatic lens on the image side, will provide a very well-corrected system. Figure 2: Prescription of EO Micro Video Lens (#58-204) Figure 1: Lens Catalog from Zemax Figure 3: Use Off-the-Shelf Components to Quickly Assemble a 15X Microscope For more optics application notes, visit www.edmundoptics.com/appnotes 5 development & Prototyping When developing a product, being able to quickly and easily iterate your prototypes is critical.

We can cut any optic to meet your needs. For thin, flat optics, we offer an economical and easily repeatable scribe and break process. For thicker optics, our expert team may use precision saw cuts to create the desired geometry. A linear cut to size is not limited to only flat optics; the process can also be applied to optics with curved surfaces. For instance, a PCX lens can be modified from having a circular diameter to having a square outer edge.

Stray light is energy outside of the clear aperture of an optical system that scatters off of the edges of an optical or mechanical component and reaches the sensor in the form of noise. Because stray light contributes noise rather than signal, stray light is a common limiting factor in overall performance of multi-element systems. To minimize stray light, we can edge blacken an optic using an RoHS compliant, solvent-resistant ink and improve overall light throughput.

Using S-, c-, and T-mount components and the TECHSPEC® optical cage system Selecting the right mounting component is critical when trying to maximize the performance of an optical system. Edmund Optics® offers fixed, adjustable, and kinematic mounts for a range of optical components including lenses, filters, mirrors, and prisms. Our modular S-, C-, and T-mount components can easily integrate with TECHSPEC® Optical Cage System components for added functionality, such as for minimizing stray light or for incorporating light sources, cameras, or detectors. Figures 1 - 4 demonstrate a few examples of how to use C-mount components within cage system setups. Figure 1: An Imaging System out of C-mount Components Figure 2: 30mm Inner Diameter Cage Plate with a C-mount Lens Mount Figure 3: Folded Path Prototype Set-up with Cage Component Parts Figure 4: OEM Imaging Assembly Prototype with Cage System Components Our large selection of S-, C-, and T-mounting components and accessories are cross compatible for easy system integration and prototyping. Each mount utilizes a retainer ring to evenly distribute pressure on the secured optic’s circumference, removing unneeded strain and the risk of damage. Many of the mounts are designed to hold single or multi-element optics. Having issues with stray light? C-mount extension tubes are simple solutions for minimizing stray light and for improving system performance. Any C-mount tube or C-mount lens mount with an outer diameter of 30mm can be secured within a 30mm inner diameter cage plate. Designed for modularity and flexibility, optical cage systems are high precision alternatives to complex optical alignment systems. Constructed of rods and plates, cage systems allow the user to continuously modify the system’s design by adding additional components, such as optical mounts and angular brackets. Using TECHSPEC® Optical Cage System components, Figure 4 shows a working prototype of an imaging-based inspection system. Also shown is the final OEM production unit.

This radius is its theoretical or design shape. • In manufacturing, the radius of the component will differ slightly than its design shape, so a best-fit sphere to a surface or wavefront is obtained by comparing to a theoretical surface. • For testing purposes, the desired theoretical surface may be represented by a test plate, interferometric reference surface, or other measuring device of sufficient accuracy. Reference ISO 10110-5 for more detail. Power • Power or Radius Error is the deviation from the design shape of the surface. These differences are equal changes in the radius of curvature throughout the surface. • Test plates can be used to measure the sag difference between the theoretical surface radius and the part under test using interferometry. • Every fringe or change from light to dark ring is a sag difference of a ½ wavelength of the light used to see the interference. fringes = waves of power 2 Irregularity • Irregularity is the remaining form error when constant radius error (power) is removed from the measured surface. • This error can be expressed as peak-to-valley (PV). The maximum distance minus the minimum distance between the residual error of the best fit sphere and the surface or wavefront. Surface Flatness • A type of surface accuracy specification that measures the deviation of a flat surface such as that of a mirror, window, prism, or plano-lens. • This deviation can be measured using an optical flat. When the flat surface of the test optic is placed against the optical flat, fringes appear whose shape dictates the surface flatness of the optic under inspection. 13 quality & support Edmund Optics® has been a trusted source for quality optics, imaging, and optomechanical components for nearly 75 years.
