ASA believes that the most important part in producing optics is the testing. So ASA decided to invest in the best test equipment available, remove any measuring error as good as possible and use real values in their specifications.
1 m optics can be produced in less than 3 months from order to delivery, we welcome your inquiry. Lenses can be made from all materials available in the Schott or CDGM glass catalogue.
The 800 mm mirror with f2.5 has been produced at the ASA optical factory and measured with a CGH and our 4D Phasecam 4020.
ASA is currently running a serial production with an output of one mirror every 3 weeks.
The 1000 mm f1.8 mirror was produced on the UPG2000 and measured with a CGH.
Pixel sampling was 1.67 mm.
Wavefront RMS is 23 nm, PV is 113 nm. This was appr. 2x better than demanded by the customer.
ASA decided to invest in their own optical production and the optics they produce are far better than anything they have obtained so far.
ASA’s CNC based state of the art polishing techniques allow them to correct surface errors like astigmatism to perfection. They are also able to produce any free form surfaces like off-axis parabola and even more complicated shapes.
