Polishing study using Teflon and pitch laps to produce flat and supersmooth surfaces.
Teflon polishing is compared with pitch polishing as a method for achieving supersmooth and flat optical surfaces. Because a Teflon lap wears slowly, it will retain its surface shape to produceExpand

Power spectral density analysis of optical substrates for gravitational-wave interferometry.
The power spectral density of surface-relief variations on polished optical surfaces across microscopic through to macroscopic spatial scales is calculated from measurements on substrates that areExpand

Teflon laps: some new developments and results.
The process of superpolishing with Teflon laps has enabled supersmooth [< 0.1 nm rms] and extremely flat (λ/100) optical surfaces to be produced on a large range of amorphous and crystalline opticalExpand

Electrooptic Fabry-Perot filter: development for the study of solar oscillations.
Observations of nonradial solar oscillations require Doppler velocity measurement at many points over the photosphere with a velocity resolution better than 1 m/s. An attractive form of imagingExpand

The molar volume of silicon [Avogadro constant]
A reevaluation has been made of the density and molar mass data for the silicon single crystals used in three Avogadro projects in which the authors' institutions are cooperating. A value of 12.058Expand

High Precision Digital Interferometry: Its Application To The Production Of An Ultrathin Solid Fabry-Perot Etalon
Teflon polishing is capable of producing surfaces flat to 3 nm or better, but its wider application requires suitable testing methods to measure such small residual errors. Digital interferometryExpand
