Paper Abstract

There is significant sophistication in the individual fields of fabrication, coating, and metrology. Uncoated optics are characterized accurately by a wide array of techniques, as are optical coatings. However, often the coating process can change the intrinsic properties of the polished substrate such as figure, microroughness, defect density and so scattering properties. Optical components can often be distorted out of specification during assembly by contacting or cementing, and during mounting. This presentation will give examples of the interplay of all processes from fabrication, cleaning, coating, assembling and mounting on the measured performance of some precision optical components and assemblies.
