Paper Abstract

Improved production of large optical mirrors may result from combining single point diamond crushing of the glass with polishing using a small area tool to smooth the surface and remove the damaged layer. Diamond crushing allows an accurate surface contour to be generated and the small area polishing tool allows the surface roughness to be removed without destroying the contour.
