EMPIR optical project consortium to present at major international conference

Aspheres and freeform surfaces are components used in a variety of optical systems

ASPEN 2019: 8th International Conference of Asian Society for precision Engineering and Technology, Japan, 12 – 15 November

The Project

EMPIR project ‘Reference algorithms and metrology on aspherical and freeform lenses’ (15SIB01, FreeFORM) is working to develop new measurement capabilities to routinely measure aspherical and freeform optical surfaces at a precision of less than 30 nanometres. These surfaces are used in a variety of optical systems, from medical imaging to astronomy.

The conference

Results from the project will be presented at ASPEN2019, the 8th International Conference of Asian Society for precision Engineering and Technology.

The conference will focus on precision engineering, nanotechnology and manufacturing industries in Asia, and important field for future research.

Project partners will present a talk entitled ‘A reference based data method for the evaluation of aspherical and freeform fitting algorithms’.

Conference topics

Conference topics will include:

  • Metrology
  • Micro/Nano Fabrication Processes
  • Molding and Forming Technology
  • Nano/Bio Technology
  • Non-traditional Manufacturing Processes
  • Optical Applications
  • Precision Machine Design
  • Service Engineering
  • Surface Properties and Characterization
  • Other Topics Related to Precision Engineering
