Jena, Germany -- Today, complex optical free-form geometries are used primarily in car headlamps and in optics for cameras and digital projectors. These optical components are expensive to manufacture and to test.
At Hannover-Messe on April 21 through 25 (Hall 2, Stand D22), scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena will be presenting the 3-D measuring system LensShape, which renders the manufacturing process faster and more cost-effective.
“The lenses used in many optical components today – for instance in car headlamps, or in digital projectors or cameras – are no longer spherical, but have free-form geometries,” says Dr. Gunther Notni of the IOF.
“Free-form geometries are not rotationally symmetrical, but may be surfaces of any shape. This makes them expensive to manufacture, and the conventional methods used so far have not allowed the lenses and mirrors to be tested thoroughly enough. Until now, it has taken over an hour to measure the aspherical lenses using high-precision coordinate measuring devices.”

Norton, MA, USA -- Measurement Computing Corporation's DASYLab 10 is a graphical programming environment for test and measurement. With intuitive worksheets, icons (or modules), and wire functions, complete applications are only a few mouse clicks away.
DASYLab 10 is compatible with Microsoft’s Vista® operating system, and optimized for operation on multi-processor PCs.
New features and improvements include:
Diagram Module—DASYLab 10 comes with a new graphical display module named Diagram, which provides outstanding interactive versatility of time domain data.
The Diagram module may be configured as an enhanced Y/t chart, X/Y chart, or Data Chart Recorder. It supports multiple y-axes and allows the user to freely assign signals to each y-axis.
For easy comparison of the time domain waveforms, users can define the offset used to display a signal, and can dynamically move a signal around within the graphical display to compare one signal with another.
