15 January 1976 Selection Of Materials And Processes For Metal Optics
Author Affiliations +
This paper reviews the problem facing today's optical designer who must select materials and proper fabrication processes for metal mirrors that are to be used in challenging high energy laser programs. The materials in use today, the properties of these materials, the environmental constraints and the fabrication options open to the designer are reviewed in depth.
