Paper Abstract

The application of advances in a variety of disciplines, has made significant impact on the area of optical sensing technology. This impact has not evolved so much from new optical designs, component prescriptions, or revolutionary coating designs, although there have been substantial innovations in certain areas. Instead, progress has resulted from the combined mix of a variety of ideas including the areas of advanced materials and material forming processes, coatings that do their job more efficiently, the application of computer control to manufacturing, wavefront correction, and alignment, as well as the collection, integration, and display of relevant data in a format that makes possible interpretation at-a-glance.
