Paper Abstract

Magnesium aluminate spinel is a durable, broadband, electro-optical material that can be readily manufactured into transparent domes for multimode seeker applications. Actual spinel domes have suffered from manufacturing difficulties and light-scattering inclusions. The program described herein has solved many of the difficulties to achieve better optical properties and better process yields.
