Paper Abstract

SFIM ODS is involved in the French MEGAJOULE Project managed by the Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique. It is a high power UV-laser using 240 square beams. SFIM ODS achieved a technical and economical analysis concerning the production of flat-parallel debris-shields in silica using large and specific dual-side fine-grinding and polishing machines. This analysis was supported by trials using half-scale windows showing the ability to reach the specifications with low production costs.
