Optics Contamination Control in Advanced Optics Manufacturing
Performance trends such as optics contamination control including particle monitoring, are driving manufacturers to reduce contamination to levels in which a component is exposed during manufacturing including cleaning, handling, coating and assembly.
Quality control can be compromised through component exposure to particle and molecular contamination, affecting laser damage thresholds in coatings, yields in nano-optics and LED production, and causing optical defects in high energy UV optics. Advanced optics manufacturing now requires much cleaner environments than were necessary in the past.
An overview of particle generation sources, control methods and ISO standards are discussed as factors for Optics Contamination Control. The advantages of continuous particle monitoring with laser particle counters is explained. Multiple examples of particle excursions found and fixed in the optics industry are shown as examples of improvements that can be made.
