Title: Intelligent Manufacturing of Commercial Optics Final Report CRADA No. TC-0313-92

Abstract

The project combined the research and development efforts of LLNL and the University of Rochester Center for Manufacturing Optics (COM), to develop a new generation of flexible computer controlled optics· grinding machines. COM's principal near term development effort is to commercialize the OPTICAM-SM, a new prototype spherical grinding machine. A crucial requirement for commercializing the OPTICAM-SM is the development of a predictable and repeatable material removal process ( deterministic micro-grinding) that yields high quality surfaces that minimize non-deterministic polishing. OPTICAM machine tools and the fabrication process development studies are part of COM' s response to the DOD (ARPA) request to implement a modernization strategy for revitalizing the U.S. optics manufacturing base. This project was entered into in order to develop a new generation of :flexible, computer-controlled optics grinding machines.
