Our What is QuickTurn Optics? guide describes JML Optical’s rapid prototyping initiative that allows our experts to produce custom optics in a fraction of the industry’s normal lead times.

Our eBook details the considerations, challenges and solutions kept in mind when manufacturing precision optics for medical applications across clinical and laboratory settings.

Our eBook provides an overview of the considerations to keep in mind when planning the manufacture of an optical assembly.

This guide outlines the functionality, advantages and application examples typical of aspheric lenses, as well as an overview of aspheric optics fabrication and manufacturing.

## Manufacturing Tolerances

Once a satisfactory design has been achieved, the optical element must be fabricated. The fabrication process determines the final shape and cosmetics of the surfaces. Surface figure specifications of an…read more

## MTF Evaluation

Up to this point, this discussion has considered the performance of the optical system only in terms of image location. Another factor is the resolution of a system, normally specified…read more

## Third-Order Seidel Aberrations

The derivations of the previous equations for the object, image and focal distances assumed n1θ1 = n2θ2. However, Snell’s Law is exact; the inclusion of higher orders of the sine…read more

## Theories & Formulas

Sign Conventions Before proceeding with the methods of analysis for an imaging system, a few sign conventions must be established. The first is that light travels from left to right….read more

## Index of Refraction

In a vacuum, light travels at a velocity of c = 2.998 × 108m/sec; in more dense media, the velocity of light is lower. The index of refraction of a…read more
