Paper Abstract

In previous work, laminated midwave infrare imagers were designed and manufactured. These systems used the technique of laminating a piece of plastic on to a silicon substrate lens and then single-point diamond turning an aspheric/diffractive surface on the plastic. These lenses had a focal length of 50 mm and f/# of 2.6. This paper updates the progress of the developing prototype to show initial results of compression molding the aspheric/diffractive surface onto the plastic laminated surface. The results of the previous built imagers will be compared to the ones that have been molded.
