Paper Abstract

The surface quality of optics used in an extremely sensitive laser instrument, such as a Ring Laser Gyro (RLG), is critical. Experimental evidence is presented on the damage to this class of optics that results from the typical processing and handling. Also presented is a possible solution to this problem.
