This paper will examine how optical designers can use diamond machining techniques to design, test, and construct multimirror optical systems. An unusual two-mirror telescope will be used to demonstrate the advantages of these techniques. A review of the use of non-traditional surface descriptions, a diamond machining approach to aspheric surface metrology, and techniques for system construction and assembly will be described.
