This paper describes a systematic problem solving approach used to determine causes for separation that may occur in bonded optical assemblies when using an ultraviolet curing optical adhesive. Many interrelated factors in the bonding process can influence the integrity of the bond. By characterizing and diagramming these factors, separation causes can be identified and eliminated thus reducing problem solving time. The U.V. adhesive bonding process characterization can also be used as a guide for process analysis and optimization.
