Paper Abstract

The main features of this new laboratory instrument are: - measurement of the lens with the optical axis in the vertical position (as in practical use) - angular measurements by means of photoelectric sensors, rather than by visual observation. Thus, geometric calibration can also be carried out in the near infra-red range of the spectrum - automation of the measurement procedures, including spectral adaptations. The characteristics of the system are described, some technical data are given, and typical results are shown and compared with other methods. The problem of photoelectric orientation is also discussed.
