Paper Abstract

Nowadays, there is a demand for more efficient opto-mechanical mounts which allow for the implementation of robust optical arrays in a quick and simple fashion. That is to say, mounts are needed which facilitate alignment of the optical components in order to perform the desired movements of each component. Optical testing systems available in the market today are costly, heavy and sometimes require multiple kits depending on the dimensions of the optical components. In this paper, we present the design and analysis of a mechanical system with some interchangeable basic mounts which allow for the application of both Ronchi and Fizeau tests for the evaluation of concave reflective surfaces with a diameter of 2 to 10 cm. The mechanical system design is done using the methodology of product design process, while the analysis is performed using the commercial software SolidWorks.
