Abstract
A procedure is described for the use of diamond-impregnated pitch and silicone oil which has produced surfaces which appear to be as smooth as 5 Angstrom rms on small flat samples removing the objectionable diffraction-producing grooves that sometimes accompany diamond turning. Possible mechanisms are described together with the procedures and equipment used to polish an x-ray microscope and a UV telescope.
