1 November 1990 Demonstration of an ion-figuring process
Author Affiliations +
The Kodak 2 .5m Ion Figuring System (IFS), intended for the final figuring of large optics using a directed inert neutralized ion beam, has been installed and is operational. Process development and production implementation efforts are currently underway. Thermal heating effects due to exposure to the ion beam removal function are discussed. Details of processing and results from an ion figuring correction of a 0.Sm lightweighted optic are presented.
