Offline development of active-alignment-algorithms by efficient interpolation of discrete databases
Automated active alignment of optical components during the assembly process of optical systems is state of the art in todays optics-production. With the increasing demand of optical systems in smart devices and automotive technologies, new methods and strategies have to be developed to guarantee rapid and goal-oriented development of active-alignment algorithms. A key approach to this is offline development via simulations. This paper presents and evaluates an efficient approach to generate a continuous data-feedback for the offline development of active-alignment-algorithms by interpolation of a discrete database. Dependent on the system-input the described procedure generates the raw, array-like output data of a CCD-chip from the existing data of the local neighborhood.
