  • 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 optical materials. Stable surface conditions and the very low wear of a Teflon lap during polishing provide an opportunity to examine the effects of varying different polishing parameters. These include sample-tolap mismatch and the influence of different polishing compounds and fluid chemistry. The results… CONTINUE READING
