Diamond Turned Super Alloy Mandrel for Slump Forming X-Ray Observatory (IXO) Mirrors, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Diamond Turned Super Alloy Mandrel for Slump Forming X-Ray Observatory (IXO) Mirrors, Phase I
Diamond turning is proven to be able to quickly produce highly aspheric grazing incidence optical contours to visible wavelength tolerances with extremely smooth surfaces. Super alloys with exceptional dimensional stability and strength under cyclic high temperatures have been developed for gas turbine engines. More »
