Abstract

A technique is described for accurately polishing extremely small areas by ion machining. A graphite mask is prepared with a pulsed laser cutting tool. Prepared under computer control, this mask defines the contour of the cavity to be formed in a glass tube. Two methods for measuring final contour of the tube are described.
