Paper Abstract

The rapidly renewable lap is based on the simple concept of generating the figure needed in a lap substrate and then replicating it into a thin film slumped over the substrate. Based on this concept, we describe how efficient laps can be constructed for the lapping and polishing of crystalline, amorphous, and metallic surfaces.
