ISO/TC 172/SC 1, Fundamental Standards, Activity for 2005
SC 1 met in Weimar, Germany May 25 - 27, 2005. Gene Kohlenberg, OEOSC, and David Aikens,
Zygo, represented the United States at these meetings. Other countries represented were France,
Germany, Japan, Switzerland, and United Kingdom.
The following items have been excerpted from the Weimar meeting report:
WG 1 Genereal optical test methods
DIS 14999-4 "
Interferometric measurement ... ­ Interpretation and evaluation of ... "
No final conclusion on further procedure for this DIS (disapproved in the voting) could be
reached during the Weimar meeting, however, the course of further action as regards the work
item was agreed and a new project leader (Karl-Edmund Elßner) appointed.
AWI 14999-5 "
Interferometric measurement ... ­ Measurement procedures "
No conclusion on the further procedure for this newly approved work item could be drawn at
the meeting. This depends from the further procedure on ISO/DIS 14999-4.
The Subcommittee considered the future of projects WD 10110-5 and ­14 (at stage of newly
approved work item) and ISO/DIS 14999-4 (rejected at the DIS stage).
ISO/DIS 14999-4, Optics and photonics ­ Interferometric measurement of optical elements and
optical
systems ­ Part 4: Interpretation and evaluation of tolerances specified in ISO 10110
WD 10110-5, Optics and photonics ­ Preparation of drawings for optical elements and systems
­ Part 5:
Surface form tolerances
WD 10110-14, Optics and photonics ­ Preparation of drawings for optical elements and
systems ­ Part 14:
Wavefront deformation tolerances A task group was formed under the leadership of Dr Elßner
to harmonize the three documents. The Subcommittee adopted the recommendation by WG 1
and WG 2 to accept the offer of the US delegation to prepare a summary of a new draft by 31
July 2005. This summary was considered by the task group who decided to accept the US
committee's outline. The US is now editing the draft.
CD 15529 "
OTF ­ Principles of measurement of MTF of sampled imaging systems "
The Subcommittee decided ­ after revision in accordance with the Weimar WG 1 meeting ­ to
submit to ISO Central Secretariat with a view to circulation as a Draft International Standard:
ISO 9334 "
OTF ­ Definitions and mathematical relationships "
ISO CS will be asked to issue a corrected re-print of this standard in order to correct technical
errors and to clarify it, as was proposed in the comments received in the systematic review.

ISO CS will be asked to issue a Technical Corrigendum to this standard in order to correct it as
proposed in the comments received in the systematic review.
A possible new item for future work of WG 1 will address the subject of thermal imaging. It was
anticipated that a NWIP on this topic will be circulated for vote by the time of the next meeting.
WG 2 Preparation of drawings for optical elements and systems
DIS 10110-1 "
Preparation of drawings ... ­ General"
The draft will be revised according to the decisions of WG 2 based on the voting comments and
circulated as a Final Draft International Standard.
CD 10110-12 "
Preparation of drawings ... ­ Aspheric surfaces"
The Subcommittee decided to release ISO/CD 10110-12 as a Draft International Standard:
ISO/CD 10110-12, Optics and photonics ­ Preparation of drawings for optical elements and
systems ­ Part
12: Aspheric surfaces
The draft will be revised according to the decisions of WG 2 based on the voting comments and
circulated as a Draft International Standard.
AWI 10110-7 "
Preparation of drawings ... ­ Surface imperfection tolerances"
The Subcommittee decided to release ISO/WD 10110-7 as a Committee Draft:
WD 10110-7, Optics and photonics ­ Preparation of drawings for optical elements and systems
­ Part 7:
Surface imperfection tolerances
The draft will be revised according to the decisions of WG 2 based on the voting comments and
circulated as Committee Draft.
CD 10110-6 "
Preparation of drawings ... ­ Centring tolerances"
AWI 10110-8 "
Preparation of drawings ... ­ Surface texture"
Confirmation of resolutions already taken at the St Petersburg meeting: Submission of revised
drafts for vote as Draft International Standard (ISO/DIS 10110-6) and Committee Draft
(ISO/CD 10110-8).
AWI 10110-5 "
Preparation of drawings ... ­ Surface form tolerances"
AWI 10110-14 "
Preparation of drawings ... ­ Wavefront deformation tolerances"
These two work items are closely linked to ISO/DIS 14999-4. No final conclusion on further
procedure for the latter could be reached during the Weimar meeting. However, the course of
further action was agreed and a new project leader (Karl-Edmund Elßner) appointed.
Joint meeting with ISO/TC 172/SC 3/WG 1
Preparatory work on a future standard and technical report on raw optical glass specification is
under way in ISO/TC 172/SC 3/WG 1. As soon as this is an adopted ISO item, adjustment of
standards ISO 10110-2, -3 and -4 are likely to be required, and will be proposed as new work
items of WG 2 at that time. Information exchange between the two groups will be ongoing.

Environmental requirements ­ General overview ... "
DIS 10109-6 "
Environmental requirements ­ ... medical optical instruments "
DIS 10109-8 "
Environmental requirements ­ ... for extreme conditions of use "
Decided to submit revised drafts for publication as ISO Standards (100 % approval of DIS).
A possible new item for future work of WG 3 will consolidate several parts of ISO 9022 series into one
single simplified (and much shorter) standard relating to combined temperature/mechanical stress
testing. It was anticipated that a NWIP to this effect (proposal for ISO 9022-22) will be circulated for
vote by the time of the next meeting.
WG 4 Data transfer: Contents and management
NWIP xxxxx "
Electronic exchange of optical data (NODIF) "
NP 23584 "
Specification of reference dictionary
"
It was reported that WG 4 had now two approved work items, one being the newly approved
project NP 23584 and the other one being "NODIF", for which a late nomination of US expert
for active participation was announced during the Weimar meeting. Reports on preparatory
work done on the two projects were presented in the WG 4 meeting and there was discussion on
them and on the relationships between the various approaches. Conclusions were reached as
regards the further procedure, requirements and tasks regarding NP 23584 and its associated
database...
Review of structure of the subcommittee and of convenerships;
conclusions from review of liaisons; confirmation of any changes.
No need for changes to the subcommittee structure or convenerships was identified. The
conclusion of the review of liaisons with other committees was that Thomas Sänger was
nominated new (additional) liaison delegates to ISO/SC 184/SC 4.
Furthermore, liaison shall be newly established with ISO/IEC JWG1 "Product properties and
families
". Thomas Sänger and Jean-Luc Levesque will serve as SC 1 liaison delegates to this
group.
The United States invited ISO/TC 172/SC 1 and its working groups to hold the next meeting during
June 2006 in Boulder, Colorado. Meetings of ISO/TC 172/SC 5 and SC 9 could be held in collocation,
if these subcommittees concurred to the proposed place and date.

WG 10 "Microscope digital image data"
On behalf of the convener George Steares, Lee Shuett gave a report on the WG 10
activities. Since there were only very few, SC 5 asked to clarify on US level how this
WG will be led in future and encouraged the US to take up actions. The US delegation
expressed itself as confident to call a first WG 10 meeting during the next meeting
session of SC 5 next year. Also a set of first papers was promised by the US delegation.
Resolution Lucerne 96/2005
Status report on revisions to current Standards
ISO 11884-1 "Minimum requirements for stereomicroscopes ­ Part 1:
Stereomicroscopes for general use"
The secretary informed the meeting about the positive DIS voting. Furthermore the DIS
voting contained only positive votes accompanied by two very minor editorial comments.
On that basis the ISO rules allow the direct processing to publication by skipping the
FDIS stage. That was done and the standard is expected to be published after the
preparation of the French language version.
ISO 11884-2 "Minimum requirements for stereomicroscopes ­ Part 2: High
performance microscopes"
The secretary informed the meeting about the positive CD voting (see N 377).
Furthermore the CD voting contained only positive votes with no comments. The
manuscript was launched to ISO/CS for DIS voting mid July this year and the DIS is
expected to be published after the preparation of the French language version.

ISO/TC 172/SC 7 Ophthalmic Optics
Annual Report for 2005
Prepared by
Charles Campbell, SC7 US Delegation Leader
No meetings of SC7 were held in 2005. The next meeting of SC7 is scheduled to be held
in Baden, Switzerland on April 24 to 28, 2006.
During the course of the year the work of the various working groups, as represented by
the documents prepared and voted on, was as follows;
New work proposed ­ 3
WG6 ­ 1
WG7 - 2
NWIP (new work item proposals) - 3

WG6 ­ 5
WG7 ­ 1
WG9 ­ 2
It can be seen that the work of SC7 in 2005 is further alone in the standardization cycle
than it was in 2004. There are fewer standards in the CD stage and many in the DIS and
FDIS stage. Most of the items that need standardization have been addressed and a good
deal of the work now consists in revision of existing standards. This is reflected in the
number of standards that came up for 5-year periodic review. This is only reasonable for
a subcommittee that has been in active existence for over 20 years.
WG7 ­ Implants has been revising various sections of the Intraocular Standard and have
held a number of special meetings through out the year to do this.
WG9 ­ Contact Lenses has essentially completed the process of consolidating various
standards relating to contact lenses created over a period of over 10 years into a single
comprehensive standard.
It will be noted that although there were there were several formal meetings held by
working groups WG7 and WG9. Other work continued to flow at a goodly rate through
the various working groups by correspondence.
During 2005, 5 new International Standards originating in SC7 were published. They
came from the following working groups.
WG2 - 1
WG3 - 1
WG6 - 3

ISO/TC 172/SC 9 Electro-Optical Systems (Including Lasers)
Annual Report for 2005
Prepared by
Robert Faaland, SC 9 US Delegation Leader
The ISO Electro-Optical Systems (including lasers) Subcommittee (ISO/TC 172/SC 9)
held its annual meeting in London, United Kingdom on June 20-22, 2005. The meeting
was hosted by the British Standards Institute (BSI). The following US members were in
attendance: R. Faaland (US Delegation Leader), B. Hitz (Chairman ISO/TC 172/SC 9), T.
Lieb (IEC/TC 76 liaison), C. Camelio, G. Wolf, J. Arenberg, and M. Dowell.
An outcome of the Milan (2002) meeting was that an agreement had finally been reached
between ISO/TC 172/SC 9 and IEC/SC 47E on how laser diode standards would be
handled between ISO and IEC. This had been the result of work during many past annual
meetings of the Joint Working Group (JWG) formed by members of the ISO and IEC
subcommittees. At the Tokyo (2003) meeting, decisions were made relevant to changes
which need to be incorporated into ISO and IEC documents. Work continued at the
Pforzheim (2004) and London (2005) meetings. These suggested changes, and present
status of affected documents, are:
1. ISO 11145 will include definitions related to misalignment and astigmatic
difference in its amendment version. [The DIS manuscript for the amendment of
ISO 11145 has been approved. A decision was made to publish a revision of ISO
11145 which will incorporate the amendment. Circulation of the FDIS
manuscript to revise ISO 11145:2001 (and incorporate the amendment) is
forthcoming.]
2. ISO 11146-1 will include astigmatic equation. [Standard was published January
15, 2005.]
3. ISO 11554 will include definition and measurement method for the fall time in its
amendment version. [The FDIS manuscript for revision of ISO 11554 has been
circulated. Voting terminates on February 15, 2006.]
4. IEC 60747-5-4 will include definition and measurement method for the half-
intensity angle. Also, tables of the item of terminologies and easement methods
background image
14
which have been described in the relevant ISO documents will be inserted in the
appropriate part of IEC document. [Status of this IEC document is reported to be
at the DIS stage.]

The following document-related resolutions were made at the London meeting:
1. Item 11151-1, Lasers and laser-related equipment ­ Standard optical components
­ Part 1: Components for the UV, visible and near-infrared spectral ranges
: as a
result of the systematic review, ISO 11151-1:2000 will be confirmed.
2. Item 11151-2, Lasers and laser-related equipment ­ Standard optical components
­ Part 2: Components for the infrared spectral range
: as a result of the systematic
review, ISO 11151-2:2000 will be confirmed.
3. Item 11254-1, Lasers and laser-related equipment ­ Determination of laser-
induced damage threshold of optical surfaces ­ Part 1: 1-on-1 test
: as a result of
the systematic review, ISO 11254-1:2000 will be confirmed. However, it was
agreed to restructure the ISO 11254 series to embody the latest techniques, to
eliminate redundancies and to facilitate maintenance of the standard. The
following structure is proposed: Part 1: Definitions and general principle; Part 2:
Threshold determination; Part 3: Assurance of laser power (energy) handling
capabilities; and Part 4: Inspection, detection and measurement. New work item
proposals are to be issued in 2006.
4. Item 11254-3, Lasers and laser-related equipment ­ Determination of laser-
induced damage threshold of optical surfaces ­ Part 3: Laser power (energy)
handling capabilities
: The title is to be changed to: Lasers and laser-related
equipment ­ Determination of laser-induced damage threshold of optical surfaces
­ Part 3: Assurance of laser power (energy) handling capabilities
.
5. Item 11553-1, Safety of machinery ­ Laser processing machines ­ Part 1:
General safety requirements
: A New Work Item Proposal for an amendment to
add noise requirements will be circulated. Once added to the work program, the
manuscript of the amendment will be circulated to SC 9 members for voting and
comment.

­ Test methods for laser beam power (energy) density distribution
: as a result of
the systematic review, ISO 13694:2000 will be confirmed. However, a decision
was made to issue a Technical Corrigendum to include a patent statement that was
required and also to eliminate incorrect details on the determination of the
goodness of fit.
9. Item 13697, Optics and photonics ­ Lasers and laser-related equipment ­ Test
methods for specular reflectance and transmittance of optical laser components
:
an FDIS manuscript is to be submitted to SC 9 members for voting and comment.

ISO/TC 172 Work Item 23584). Initially, the Secretariat will upload standardized
terminology from ISO 11145 (Optics and optical instruments ­ Lasers and laser-related
equipment ­ Vocabulary and symbols
), ISO 11807-1 (Integrated optics ­ Vocabulary ­
Part 1: Basic terms and symbols
) and -2 (Integrated optics ­ Vocabulary ­ Part 2: Terms
used in classification
), ISO 14880-1 (Optics and photonics ­ Microlens arrays ­ Part 1:
Vocabulary
), ISO 15367-1 (Lasers and laser-related equipment ­ Test methods for
determination of the shape of a laser beam wavefront ­ Part 1: Terminology and
fundamental aspects
), and ISO 15902 (Optics and photonics ­ Diffractive optics ­
Vocabulary
) to the ISO/TC 172 properties server. Additional terms, definitions and
contributions will follow.
The next meeting of ISO/TC 172/SC 9 will be held in Boulder, Colorado, USA on June
28-30, 2006.
