Project Description

Amorphous Metals for Opto-Mechanical Fixtures and Mechanisms, Year 2

Develop a technology to form low cost; high-precision mirror assemblies from Amorphous Metals: Take AMs from TRL-1 to TRL-3 in FY12,Fabricate a reproducible isogrid backing from AM; Form a near-optically smooth surface with curvature in a one-step casting process, Develop a composite with a controllable CTE by adding negative CTE second phase particles; Investigate casting methods (forging, casting, etc.), Develop new IP on materials and processes, Engage with industry to work towards scale-up.
