Abstract:

This workshop on TestingFabricationGradient Index Optics and Computer Aided Manufacture of Optics represents the sixth of a series of intensive academicgovernment interactions in the field of advanced electro- optics, as part of the Army sponsored University Research Initiative. Some of the topics discussed include The possibilities of using gradient index for night vision goggles, helmet mounted displays, IR rifle scopes and IR goggles The possibility of using tin in germanium to make gradient index The possibility of making gradient detectors, for example, to change the spectraband of various detectors Space processing of radial gradients and the Ogive problem This is a problem whereby the shape of the surface is no longer spherical but is pointed, and thus the optics are complicated. This would be particularly important since high index materials may now be available and it may be possible to correct the aberrations in a better way than had been previously done. Keywords Refraction, Eye.
