Award List:

Low Cost Very Large Diamond Turned Metal Mirror

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: John Casstevens, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $97,940.00
Abstract:
Electrolytic plating of high phosphorus nickel phosphorus alloy will encapsulate a machined mirror substrate master made of fine cell plastic foam such as polystyrene that has been sealed and made electrically conductive with painted-on coatings. After encapsulation with up to one millimeter of NiP… More

Very High Load Capacity Air Bearing Spindle for Large Diamond Turning Machines

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: John Casstevens, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $95,866.00
Abstract:
Diamond turning is able to produce highly aspheric visible quality optics which can be easily aligned. Very large optical systems such as OWL and EUSO are impossible to produce using diamond turning because machines capable of machining 3 meter size optics do not exist. This is because no air… More

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

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: John Casstevens, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $124,234.00
Abstract:
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… More
