Title (EN) KINEMATIC OPTICAL MOUNTING ASSEMBLY WITH FLEXURES
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE MONTAGE OPTIQUE CINEMATIQUE A FLEXIONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A kinematic optical mounting assembly secures an optical element (48) to a base. A plurality of first bracket assemblies (64) and second bracket assemblies (66) are secured to the base and engage the optical element (48). Each first bracket (64) assembly constrains the optical element (48) from movement relative to the base in a direction substantially parallel to an axis of the base. Each second bracket (66) assembly constrains the optical element from movement relative to a base in a direction substantially perpendicular to the axis of the base and substantially tangential to a periphery of the base. Six independent bracket assemblies constrain the optical element in six degrees of freedom to provide kinematic constraint without bending moments.
(FR)La présente invention a trait à un ensemble de montage optique cinématique assurant la fixation d'un élément optique (48) à un socle. Une pluralité de premiers ensembles de supports (64) et de deuxièmes ensembles de supports (66) sont solidaires du socle et engagent l'élément optique (48). Chaque premier ensemble de supports (64) limite un mouvement relatif de l'élément optique (48) par rapport au socle en une direction sensiblement parallèle à un axe du socle. Chaque deuxième ensemble de support (66) limite un mouvement relatif de l'élément optique par rapport au socle dans une direction sensiblement perpendiculaire à l'axe du socle et sensiblement tangentielle à la périphérie du socle. Six ensembles de supports indépendants limitent l'élément optique dans six degrés de liberté pour assurer une contrainte cinématique sans moments de flexion.
