Paper Abstract

Optical systems often require compensation during operation to accommodate environmental and process changes. Compensation usually involves the movement of a lens element insitu. Different optomechanical designs are used to in order to meet the volume, optical and environmental systems requirements on a case by case basis. Two opto-mechanical designs are presented and compared. The performance and service requirements dictate the methodology used, including component design, flexure construction, actuation and control system. Included will be design constraints, prototype testing, manufacturing issues and implementation problems.
