Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

An innovative 2D super-polishing process for Aluminum 6061-T6 planar mirrors which removes diamond point turning (DPT) grooves and attains rms surface finishes below 10 Angstroms has been developed. Present techniques for post-polishing of DPT grooves fail to completely remove the periodic structure resulting in a loss of specular energy into ...
