Paper Abstract

Stray light mitigation is a critical aspect in many optical systems and can be approached in many ways. One method to reduce stray light is to incorporate baffle vanes into a system. To go from an ideal baffle vane to a manufacturable baffle adds complexity in how to mechanically reduce stray light. This paper discusses the manufacturable aspect of baffle vane fabrication in determining the optimal orientation a bevel should have on a straight-vane baffle. Various configurations for bevel orientation were analyzed to provide a deeper understanding of past research.
