• Overview

    Designing tomorrow’s systems today

    Parallel to this year's Laser World of Photonics, asphericon ACADEMY will take place in Munich. Focus will be on three workshops on optical design, manufacturing and metrology for applications with aspheres and freeforms. All three practice-oriented workshops are designed in such a way that they complement each other and can be excellently combined. Mix and match the workshops according to your visit to Laser World of Photonics (day ticket included in the price). Take the opportunity to exchange experiences with the technology leader in aspheric and freeform manufacturing!


    • Deeper understanding of surface descriptions for aspheres (ISO 10110, Zemax, CodeV)
    • Maximum use of your optical design with aspheres
    • Tolerancing concepts (ISO 10110, Zemax, CodeV) to ensure that your asphere design is ready for manufacturing
    • Optimization of manufacturability with maximum cost efficiency
    • Considering design effects on the overall optical system
    • Challenges and opportunities in high-end finishing approaches

  • About your speaker - Dr. Ulrike Fuchs

    After joining asphericon in 2010 Dr. Fuchs focused early on linking manufacturing of aspherics and metrology with questions in optical design. With her team she is working on concepts that allow better prediction of system performance during optical design and tolerancing processes. Recently, great emphasis is put on transferring those ideas to freeform optics. As Vice President Strategy & Innovation she now coordinates all R&D activities at asphericon as well as strategic product development. She has already been able to register 6 patent families and is the inaugural winner of the Kevin P. Thompson Optical Design Innovator Award. Furthermore, she has been working as an Associated Editor for Optics Express since April 2018 and is the author of more than 60 publications. She holds a doctorate in physics from the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena.
