Assessment of 3D Printed Optics for the Use Case of Rotation Optics

High-Resolution 3D Printed Rotation Optics In this paper, written by leading researchers of KNMF/KIT, design and manufacture of a 3D printed varifocal freeform optics is presented. The optical refraction power can be tuned continuously by mutual rotation of two helically shaped lens bodies of azimuthally varying curvatures. Since no additional space for axial or [...]
