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)


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.
