    Jan 01, 1996· An example of the profiles of machined circular cylinder convex mirrors is shown in Fig. 8. As shown by Figs. 6 ~ 8, very smooth convex or concave mirror surfaces were obtained by automatic grinding operations. 5. CONCLUSIONS Grinding methods for SiC mirrors with large curvature radii were proposed, and grinding experiments were carried out.

    Although many mirrors have a flat surface, one often needs mirrors with curved surfaces; a concave curvature causes beam focusing, while a convex curvature leads to a defocusing mirror. For normal incidence, the effective focal length is half the curvature radius; the article on focal length tells how that changes for non-normal incidence. The
