Paper Abstract

The interactions between errors in manufacturing are examined for ten double Gauss lens specifications drawn from U.S. patents. The particular focus is on center thickness and radius tolerances of doublet lenses in these specifications and on the possibility of specifying these tolerances jointly. A procedure for rapid identification of lenses whose performance would be improved by joint tolerance specification is described. Then benefits of specifying thickness and radius tolerances of doublet lenses jointly are demonstrated using Monte Carlo analysis.
