Paper Abstract

This is a review article describing some of the techniques employed in meeting certain specifications for the fabrication of Antares 18" diameter NaC1 laser windows. Specifically, a pressure test for strength and window stability is described as well as a method for non-contact measurement of wedge angle and wedge direction utilizing a Fizeau 18" interferometer. Also the procedure followed at Harshaw in the mounting of windows is outlined.
