Course
Summary
Since the late 1990's, the optics community has gradually been converting optics drawings from a free-form, notes-based method to a standardized, international pictographic method. In 2013, the United States joined the international community by adopting a version of ISO 10110 as the American National Standard for optics drawings. This new method is a great boon for an industry in need of standardization, but can be very confusing to the uninitiated. In addition, the standard has continued to evolve with new revisions and additions to address the needs of more applications and markets. This course provides attendees with an introduction to ISO 10110, the international standard for optics drawing notations. The course concentrates on the fundamentals of the drawing layout and how to read the notations required for typical optics, such as glass parameters, radius, wave-front, surface imperfections and roughness. Attendees are also informed about how the American version differs from the current international standard. Practical and useful examples are included throughout.
Learning Outcomes
  • read and interpret an optical drawing prepared to ISO 10110
  • identify the meaning of the symbology and specifications of ISO 10110 for materials imperfections, surface form, wedge, surface imperfections, and surface texture
  • describe which symbol corresponds to each of the fundamental optical parameters
  • compose and interpret an ISO 10110-compliant optical element drawing
Intended
Audience
This material is intended for anyone who has a basic understanding of optics, and encounters or generates optical drawings in the course of their work. Those who either design their own optics, work with optical designers, work with optical suppliers, or manufacture optics will find this course valuable.
