Paper Abstract

Modem Single Point Diamond Turning (SPDT) technology offers new opportunities to address a large number of traditional problems in optical assembly and alignment. Traditional optical manufacturing rules-of-thumb have resulted from a lack of control over the Optomechanical Interface (OMI). Because of the extreme accuracy associated with SPDT, conventional alignment methods can be replaced with deterministic and cost effective methods. These SPDT techniques have been demonstrated at OCA to be compatible with athermalization strategies, and with design-to-unit-production-cost (DTUPC) considerations.
