Paper Abstract

A fabrication process is now available that can manufacture focusing mirrors for the 10-kJ laser fusion experiment being conducted by the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory. Techniques have been developed for satisfactory metal preparation, copper electroplating, single-crystal diamond turning, and optical inspection. Fabrication of these mirrors by these techniques, and a post diamond-turning polish, resulted in diffraction-limited optics at a wavelength of 10.6 pm.
