29 - 30 September course Optomechanics.

Maximum number of entries has been reached, no more registration possilbe!

Purpose:
Opto-mechanics will cover subjects on optics and optics mounting alignment, dynamics and thermal stability or

material stability. A wide variety of examples from space, astronomy, defense and industry will be used to clarify theory. Many practical analytical tools will be presented The course will be presented by mr Daniel Vukobratovich Senior Scientist at Ratheyon as well as professor at Tucson University. He has been involved in a large number of publications and has an impressive track record on opto-mechanical developments.

Overview:
The courses are meant for engineers and systems engineers, PhD students or involved Technicians  to learn about

optics or opto-mechanics. The important basics as well as details on state of the art developments will be presented. Hands on design exercises using state of art tools are part of the program.

Course description

In two days roughly following three key aspects materials, opto-mechanical design and lens and mirror mounting will be presented.  

Typical aspects for materials in optics are stress optics coefficient, thermal properties, dimensional stability or drift. Specific material aspects of optical glasses as well as plastics will be elaborated on. The course typically focuses on engineers and has a practical approach. The course will provide you with an impressive amount of data, graphs and specific knowledge gather by mr. Vukobratovich, which will help you in material selection or predicting and understanding a wide variety of typical materials used in optical systems.

Next topic which will be presented is opto-mechanical design. Aspects as control and prediction of deflection of systems and optical elements will be presented. Kinematic design or a-thermal design are also part of the course. A wide variety of practical solutions as well formulas for design assessments will be presented. Part of the course material are mcad files, which help you to apply knowledge from the course straightaway into your opto-mechanical designs process  

Understanding of Precision motion or vibration isolation is important in design of high stable optical systems. Examples and practical analyses tools will be presented.

Lens and mirror mounts is the next topic which will be discussed. Not only standard lens, mirror or prism mounts but also design of windows or domes mountings will be presented.

Generic aspects of mechanical mounts or use of elastomeric mounts will be discussed. Use and design aspects of the classic lens barrel is presented and discussed as well.
