Abstract

This note summaries some fundamental aspects on single-point diamond turning technology of brittle crystalline materials for infrared optical applications. The ultra-precision machining mechanism is discussed concerning material property, tool geometry and machining parameters. Some latest results on the fabrication of aspherical optics on brittle materials are also presented.
