9 December 1983 Precision Support Of Annular Optics
Author Affiliations +
A quantitative description of the deformation of an annular optical element subject to external forces has been developed. Expressions applicable when the width of the element is small compared to its radius provide distortion data for both free rings and rings supported on thin-wall cylinder segments ('tangent flanges'). This data may be used to guide the design of fixtures for diamond turning large annular optics.
