18 August 2005 Jet-induced high-precision finishing of challenging optics
Author Affiliations +
Conformal, free form and steep concave optics are important classes of optics that are difficult to finish using conventional techniques due to mechanical interference and steep local slopes. The problem becomes more complicated when the optics approach millimeter size. In this presentation we will discuss some results from finishing such challenging optics to high precision using newly developed jet-based techniques.
