Paper Abstract

The manufacturing of optics is an important field of technology and will serve key-markets in the future. The research activities of the Transregional Collaborative Research Center ”Process Chains for the Replication of Complex Optical Elements” SFB/TR4 of the Universities of Aachen, Bremen and Stillwater (USA) have the objective to lay the scientific foundations for a deterministic and economic mass production of optical components with complex geometries, e.g. aspheric, non-rotational asymmetric or microstructured surfaces eventually superimposed on freeform geometries. The paper presents an approach for an integrated simulation and measurement interface for the analysis of manufacturing effects during the mold making as well as first results of its application on the basis of the manufacturing of mold inserts.
