Paper Abstract

A reliable, low-cost method of bonding a thin glass substrate to an alnico VI B magnet has been developed to allow the fabrication of a high-quality optical surface while minimizing the mass of non-magnetic material. The glass is bonded with an organic adhesive. A series of heat treatments after curing insures a stable figure for substrates thinner than 0.5 millimeter.
