Is coating on lenses possible ?

Yes, TOYOTEC, which operates the Optical Design Technology Navigator, can coat on lenses. In addition to the AR (anti-reflection) coating and metal reflection mirror coating (total reflection, aluminum and copper) commonly used for basic optical products, TOYOTEC can...
(RDL) What is the peripheral illumination ration ?

(RDL) What is the peripheral illumination ration ?

RDL peripheral illumination ratios are as follows Horizontal: 58% Diagonal: 45% In the central projection method used by the RDL, the vignetting ratio decreases according to the cosine fourth law. The vignetting ratio is inversely proportional to the distortion...
