AbstractThis feasibility study will focus on implementing our VIBE technology on large sapphire substrates. We have had past success with hard polycrystalline materials with removal rates 10-50x higher than conventional polishing. We feel confident that we can obtain similar high removal rates on sapphire. Most of our work will be focused on maintaining a wave front quality of lambda/10 over the entire large aperture.
