Chapter 4:
Cleaning Techniques for Small and Large Optics
Author(s): Robert Schalck
Published: 2013
DOI: 10.1117/3.1001008.ch4
This chapter covers the common techniques used to clean both small and large optics. Topics discussed in previous chapters are applied here to develop the skills needed to clean optics. These cleaning methods have historically been explained in many forms and passed along. The skills in this chapter require a certain level of practice and patience—it is best to not rush the process, as cleaning requires careful forethought and planning. Steps should be followed in order because a misstep could lead to starting again. From this chapter onward, it is important to read and understand the sections relevant to the process to be applied. Review the next few chapters to decide if one or more special techniques may also be necessary.
