Paper Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to provide a basic understanding of the fundamentals and uses of ultrasonic impact grinding (UIG) and how it can apply to the fabrication of optical components. Emphasis will be placed on the basics of UIG, examples of applications, and capabilities of the machine tools available. Because UIG has the capability to generate complex 3-D shaped in virtually all hard, brittle materials, it has many applications in the fabrication of optical surfaces as well as heat transfer surfaces in high energy components.
