Monitoring the alignment of lenses using confocal chromatic sensors

Confocal chromatic sensors are used to measure the alignment of the lens. Several sensors measure directly on the lens to detect the tilt angle to nanometer accuracy. Unlike electromagnetic sensors, confocal chromatic sensors measure reliably even on glass surfaces. Thanks to the high measuring rate, even dynamic changes of the lens movement can be reliably detected.
