Abstract
A detailed design is proposed to compare one and two mirror, parabolic and aspheric optics to achieve high numerical aperture, high-throughput, sub-micron resolution from 200 to 800 nanometers. An optimization phase will follow for the concept(s) that best satisfy the requirements. Predicted performance will be analyzed for the selected concepts including evaluation of point spread function, modulation transfer function, and encircled energy. Tolerance analysis will be conducted to identify and evaluate fabrication and alignment issues. An option is proposed to conduct a manufacture study to assess methods to efficiently mass produce the confocal objective for commercial applications.
