Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-S2.05
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11
PI: Kai Xin

NASA has a cross-project need for large format aspheric x-ray optics, which, demonstrate exceptionally low periodic surface errors. Available technologies to both measure and fabricate such surfaces are limited and have not been demonstrated to the precision required. The special requirements contemplated by future x-ray observatory missions inc...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-S2.05
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11
PI: Kai Xin

Large aperture aspheric optics are among the most susceptible optical surfaces to the accumulation of periodic surface artifacts during fabrication. Periodic features are created during the manufacturing process and lead to significant degradation in imaging performance. Most research on the topic addresses polishing, and in particular smoothing...
