Paper Abstract

A theory has been developed for representing fabricated optical components by a set of easily identified local coordinate systems linked by physically relevant stationary pivot points. The use of stationary pivot modeling has many advantages when attempting to make performance predictions on complex optical systems during the fabrication and assembly process. In this paper, the basic techniques for modeling fabricated optical components by stationary pivots are developed and some applications discussed.
