Abstract
An important feature of the diamond-machining process is the ability to accomplish both high-precision machining and optical finishing on the same fixture and to like tolerances. Thus highly accurate mechanical relationships can be built into an optical component which, while increasing part and fixturing complexity, provide a much simpler overall system design. It is this reduction in system complexity as it relates to system assembly and alignment, that provides the subject for this paper. Types of features that can be introduced, their typical accuracies and examples of their use will be presented.
