I have the feeling you meant a Beugungsring, which is a diffraction ring in English.

Otherwise, no search hits for Bergungsring.

Fixing or securing ring

Eventhough I your context doesn't say much about where this diaphragm is employed, Bergung itsel fmeans more or less the 'securing' of something, so I guess the Bergungsring has the - perhaps sole - purpose of holding the thing in place.
Langenscheidt gives among other meanings for bergen: hold; contain
