Paper Abstract

This paper reviews optical fabrication and measurement techniques for the manufacture of high-energy laser optics. The discussion of fabrication techniques includes continuous polishing of flat surfaces, controlled grinding, and fabrication procedures developed for low absorption metal mirrors and window materials. Characterization techniques of absorption calorimetry, fringes of equal chromatic order, and total integrated scatter are described along with corresponding measurement data.
