​Designing aspheres that may be successfully fabricated and tested can be a frustrating experience. The range of possible aspheres is much larger than the range of those that may be fabricated and tested with available tools. There is often little performance penalty involved in keeping aspheres within range, but doing so is difficult.  In this webcast, sponsored by LaCroix Optical, JENOPTIK will describe tools and approaches for designing aspheres that are suitable for MRF polishing and interferometric testing with sub-aperture stitching interferometers.
