These optical components of a microscope are available in different forms and are used by people when they are carrying out microscopy, life sciences, imaging and measurement. The optical components are usually made with the customers or users in mind. They have specific substrates, coating, and these will enable the ones using them to maximize their potential. The performance use UV, SWIR, MWIR, Visible and LWIR types of wavelengths. Examples of the optical lenses commonly used are:
- Cylindrical lenses.
- Aspheric lenses.
- Achromatic lenses.
- Spherical lenses.
- IR components
- Optical filters.
- Colored glass filters.
The Optical components are designed by engineers such that they have a high resolution and diffraction systems of the lens are limited. Their precision is high and this ensures that there is a good performance. Before manufacturers take the components to the market, they first of all test them extensively.
The best optical components have a strong optical and lighting analysis together with optimization. Rapid prototyping and ramp-up is a feature that enables more performance and work by users. During the course of the combination of the components and lenses, assembly requirements are observed. This gives way to precision and efficiency of the components.
When the components have been completed and assembled in manufacturing, the listed tests are carried out;
- TIR value measuring.
- Double reflection LAS centering.
- Making the assembly accuracy (0.5 micrometers).
- Salt spray test and extreme environmental condition tests.
- Humidity test.
- Temperature tests.
- Dual-band IR lens interferometer testing and
- MTF measuring.
The optical components because of their special uses in different sectors of our economies and social life need to be specially designed and manufactured. This will prove to the users that the machines like for example the CCTV cameras and the optical fibers are accurate. Their use will help solve the problems faced by people and sort the security and health sectors respectively.
