Maximum aperture angles enable maximum resolution, but also require special skills. With the adjustment processes developed by ZEISS for optical systems, we are able to combine high-precision optics and precise mechanics in high-performance lenses.
One example of this is the motorized correction of spherical aberration, which changes depending on the focal position within the specimen and affects the imaging quality. The correction is achieved by movable optical components that follow a lens-specific calibration curve. Supplemented with the appropriate firmware, the objective becomes a high-end imaging system.
