1 November 1997 Optical manufacturing requirements for an AVLIS plant
Author Affiliations +
A uranium enrichment plant utilizing atomic vapor laser isotope separation technology is currently being planned. Deployment of the plant will require tens of thousands of commercial and custom optical components and subsystems. The plant optical system will be expected to perform at a high level of optical efficiency and reliability in a high- average-power-laser production environment. During construction, demand for this large number of optics must be coordinated with the manufacturing capacity of the optical industry. The general requirements and approach to ensure supply of optical components is described. Dynamic planning and a closely coupled relationship with the optics industry will be required to control cost, schedule,and quality.
