22 December 1989 Large Optics Fabrication: Technology Drivers And New Manufacturing Techniques
Author Affiliations +
Optics currently being considered for large systems are frequently ultra-lightweight and deformable by design. They can often have unusual shapes and include non-rotationally symmetric surface figures. Surface roughness, subsurface damage, light scattering and laser damage threshold specifications are also frequently required. Manufacturing techniques currently being developed to address these stringent requirements will be discussed.
