Paper Abstract

For the assembling of the optical systems with high performance and submicron tolerances it is necessary to optimize the system while it is being assembled. This means that parts of the system must be positioned and fixed with sufficient accuracy, and that the process must be checked by optical measurement. Sensor controlled optical assembly is the combination of these activities, integrated with optical and mechanical design. We expect that sensor controlled optical assembling will make possible the manufacturing of new optical systems with high performance. In this paper we discuss the methods and technologies necessary to implement sensor controlled optical assembling and we give examples of applications. The theoretical background of this work was given in a paper delivered at the SPIE Annual Meeting 1989 in San Diego.
