Description

This text examines the various ways in which prisms and small mirrors typically are designed and mounted in optical instruments. It provides analytical tools for evaluating different designs, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of various techniques. The book, in part, is an outgrowth of SPIE short courses taught by the author and is a companion to his 1995 volume ""Mounting Lenses in Optical Instruments"". The work should be useful for engineers and other practitioners in the fields of optical engineering and optomechanical design.

Contents

Attributes of the successful optic-to-mount interface; prism design; prism mounting techniques; estimation of contact stresses in prisms; small mirror design; small mirror mounting techniques; estimation of contact stresses in small mirrors; descriptions of hardware examples. Appendices: pertinent unit conversion factors; vibration in typical military and aerospace environments; selected mechanical properties of materials.
