Paper Abstract

This paper presents a method for automatic marking of optical components for processing area. Using testing equipment, such as wave surface interferometer or coordinate contour measuring machine, we get the two dimensional maps of surface error. According to the positional relationship between the surface error distribution and the corresponding position on the optical surface, we get the X, Y coordinates of the boundary waiting for further milling, grinding or polishing in the workpiece coordinate system. The workpiece coordinate system of optical element is established and the boundary waiting for further processing is marked with points or line by using three-dimensional coordinate machine, so as to realize marking automatically. Experiments show that the processing method of marking is useful in optical manufacturing, and this method is particularly suitable for marking the optical elements that difficult to mark directly in interference testing.
