Paper Abstract

This investigation will examine differences in the diamond machined surface structure of various mono and polycrystalline germanium material forms. Germanium substrates were machined under controlled conditions and evaluated for surface texture and subsurface damage. Results of the substrate evaluations along with details of the sample preparations and machining are given.
