Paper Abstract

Precision non-contact flow polishing of exotic optical materials(i.e. Beryllium, Zerrodur,Sapphire, & Electroless nickel) will be discussed. Roughness measurements of surfaces and interferometric results will be shown.Examples of Aspheric contours polished to 1 Angstrom RMS are presented with discussion of the flow polish technique applied to finishing of optical systems.
