Title (EN) METHODS FOR OPTIMIZING MATERIALS FOR LENSES AND LENS ARRAYS AND DEVICES THEREOF
(FR) PROCÉDÉS D'OPTIMISATION DE MATIÈRES POUR LENTILLES ET RÉSEAUX DE LENTILLES ET DISPOSITIFS LES COMPRENANT
Abstract:
(EN) This technology relates generally to methods for the fabrication of lenses which include a glass carrier and an at least partially transmissive layer with one or more slope facets coupled together by one or more draft facets on a surface of the glass carrier. This technology also relates to the resulting lenses and systems including lens arrays. These methods eliminate stress deformation in the resulting lenses by the use of a separator between the glass carrier and the at least partially transmissive layer, at least partial curing of the at least partially transmissive layer prior to formation of the slope and draft facets, modified at least partially transmissive layers which have a cure temperature at or below an operating temperature range of the lens, slope and draft facet dimensions which are selected to correspond with an operating temperature range of the lens, or UV-curable at least partially transmissive layers.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une technologie qui concerne généralement des procédés de fabrication de lentilles qui comprennent un support en verre et une couche au moins partiellement transmissive comportant une ou plusieurs facettes en pente couplées ensemble par une ou plusieurs facettes obliques sur une surface du support en verre. Cette technologie concerne également les lentilles résultantes et les systèmes résultants comprenant des réseaux de lentilles. Ces procédés éliminent la déformation de tension dans les lentilles résultantes par l'utilisation d'un séparateur entre le support en verre et la couche au moins partiellement transmissive, le durcissement au moins partiel de la couche au moins partiellement transmissive avant la formation des facettes en pente et obliques, des couches modifiées au moins partiellement transmissives qui ont une température de durcissement à ou inférieure à une plage de température de fonctionnement de la lentille, des dimensions de facette en pente et oblique qui sont choisies pour correspondre à une plage de température de fonctionnement de la lentille, ou des couches durcissables par UV au moins partiellement transmissives.
