Abstract

This paper describes progress on the development of a new process for producing precision surfaces for the optics industry, and potentially for other sectors including silicon wafer fabrication and lapping and polishing of precision mechanical surfaces. The paper marks an important milestone in the development programme, with the completion of the construction of the first fully-productionised machine, and the first results from the commissioning process.
