A Collaborative Research in Experimental Study and Numerical Simulation of Compression Molding of Precision Glass Optical Elements

Abstract

Compression molding process can potentially be used to make high precision glass lenses. In a lens molding process, glass raw material is heated above its transition temperature and is subsequently pressed between the two mold halves into a lens shape. Controlled cooling (annealing) of the formed lens is then carried out with the molds in a closed position… (More)
