Paper Abstract

We were tasked recently with the design and production of an ultra-precision projection lens. The lens performance was extremely demanding, calling for a near diffraction limited MTF and a distortion requirement of less than or equal to 20%. In addition to the extremely demanding optical performance requirements, the system had to withstand a storage temperature range from -55°C to +95°C, and the lens had to perform over a somewhat smaller range. In the following paper we will describe some of the optical challenges of the design, followed by a detailed explanation of the opto-mechanical design and the elastomeric mounting schemes developed herein.
