Paper Abstract

Different applications of aspheric optics and their related fabrication methods are firstly summarized and then discussed using Carl Zeiss examples. This is done in order to highlight the potential and challenges of fabricating aspheric optics. The need to stimulate new ideas for extending manufacturing capabilities, process improvements and new fabrication technologies will also be outlined.
