Paper Abstract

New technology in directed energy systems introduces requirements for optical mirrors that are uniquely met by electroplated metals. Thermal conductivity, optical efficiency, and economy make electroplated metals the first choice in many mirror applications. However, control of electroplating process variables becomes more important as surface finish and optical figure specifications become more stringent. The morphology and mechanical properties of electrodeposits are being recognized for their effect upon the overall optical quality of mirrors.
