Paper Abstract

For many years the lens designer has been faced with the realization that the limiting criteria in lens performance could not always be attributed to his capabilities in theoretical design, but more to his ability to take into account the limitations imposed by the mechanical design and the skills and facilities available in manufacture. Modern high performance optical systems do not permit the lens designer the freedom of traditional designs in terms of tolerances and capacity to over design, to compensate for the subsequent loss of performance due to manufacturing techniques. The development of a method of lens element mounting more suited to the requirements of high performance lens systems, is described and analysed.
