Paper Abstract

Mounting aspheres is often challenging because of the higher sensitivity to decenter and tilt compared to spherical lenses. This paper first describes aspheric surface decenter and tilt error as per ISO 10110 standard. Then, the most common lens mounting and alignment method for aspheric lenses are discussed in detail. Finally, an innovative mounting method that uses surface contact mounting is presented. This auto-centering method uses the optical surfaces as mounting interfaces to provide a high level of centering accuracy for aspheric lenses. Centering measurement results for different aspheric lenses mounted using this method are also presented.
