Infrared search and track (IRST) single crystal Ge domes develop surface defects after extensive use in adverse environments such as sandstorms, rain and fog. Surface defects on Ge domes lead to a reduction in the average transmission to below acceptable limit. Replacement of the damaged dome with a new Ge dome is an expensive proposition. In this Phase I SBIR program, UES Inc. proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of a cost effective approach to refurbish Ge domes to restore desired transmission.
