Paper Abstract

The manufacture and testing of a silver parabolic mirror cut directly with a diamond tool in a high precision numericallycontrolled lathe without subsequent optical figuring or polishing is described. The mirror is 6 in. in diameter with a 1.5 in. facal length, giving an f-number (ratio of focal length to beam diameter) of 0.25.
