Paper Abstract

A conventional polishing study was conducted with infrared material zinc sulfide with the goal of producing defect-free polished surfaces in predictable amounts of time. Utilizing the measured electro-kinetic properties of the zinc sulfide and polishing abrasives, polishing slurries were selectively altered and the resulting removal rates and surface roughness values were measured. This paper will serve as a baseline for developing an empirical model for optimizing both surface roughness and removal rate for two different types of abrasives and two pitch types with ZnS.
