High-Yield Optimization: Streamlining the path to more easily manufacturable designs

High-Yield Optimization: Streamlining the path to more easily manufacturable designs

The conventional optical design approach results in designs that are very sensitive to manufacturing and alignment errors, which means the optical product is difficult to repeatedly manufacture successfully.

A new method, called High-Yield Optimization, produces designs that meet tight performance specifications, provide a higher manufacturing yield, and lower manufacturing costs through less waste.

Learn how to:

  • Optimize for as-built performance, rather than nominal performance.

  • Account for common manufacturing defects in the design process.

  • Find optical design solutions that have both good image quality and rays with low angles of incidence, which reduces the tolerance sensitivity of the resulting design when fabricated.
