Diamond Milling of IR Materials

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We review the use of multi-axis milling as a method for manufacturing freeform optics in brittle materials. Implementing this technology requires understanding of material behavior and error correction/minimization. Several examples with infrared applications are discussed.
