    13.12.2016 - Microbench History


    The Microbench – from the original idea to the revolutionary precision system

    In the context of Qioptiq’s award for the best Q-Set, an interview was conducted with Dr. Aurin about the history of the Microbench he developped.

    Dr. Aurin, what prompted you to work on an optical measuring system?
    Dr. Aurin: As part of my diploma thesis at Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences, I started the first trial for a new instrument that could accurately measure to the nearest 0.1 micrometer back in the autumn of 1961.

    Was there anything like this available on the market at the time?
    Dr. Aurin: What was already on the market at the time was the so-called “perflectometer” from Leitz in Wetzlar – a length measuring instrument that could accurately measure to the nearest 0.1 micrometer for the purpose, for example, of measuring end dimensions.

    What did you want to improve in terms of measuring technology?
    Dr. Aurin: My idea was to design an instrument with a modified beam path which would be less sensitive to minor displacements than the Leitz perflectometer.

    Did you then head to the laboratory to get started?
    Dr. Aurin: (laughs) My initial studies were carried out on the kitchen table at home. In the final phase of my studies, my grant had run out so my wife had to work. I looked after our little daughter, and on the wax tablecloth of our kitchen, I drew up my first sketches and drafts for a micro-optical bench.
