Paper Abstract

This paper will discuss the use of aluminum alloy castings as diamond machining substrates for optical surfaces. Surface texture, infrared reflectivity, and temporal stability results from cast diamond machined samples will be presented. Physical data on these alloys will be given along with casting considerations.
