Optics group in SeNSE has received a grant in aid Research project for development of Freeform and Aspheric Optics for Defence Applications

Title: Development of freeform and large size aspheric optics for thermal and optical imaging

PI: Gufran Sayeed Khan
Co-PIs: Satish Kumar Dubey and Chandra Shakher

Duration: 5 years

Funding: 41849000 (Four crore eighteen lakhs and forty nine thousand only)

Summary:

The incorporation of freeform and aspheric surfaces in optical system
provides more degrees of freedom to the designer for better aberration
control and allows one to develop compact and light-weight systems. A
complete development process of such surfaces along with a feedback
mechanism to manufacturing platform by developing in-situ measurement
technique will be established.
