We found that there was an anti reflective coating on one side of the lens we were able to then machine text onto this plastic coating using the UV nanosecond pulsed laser. The students that chose this design wanted the text to be in a spiral. The computer graphics for this design took the longest out of any of them. What was need was a single line font that could be spun into a spiral we tried different packages but couldn’t map the text onto a spiral finally using three different programs and a mathematical formula we were able to wrap the text into the spiral you see at only 0.8 mm across.
