Abstract

This paper presents studies of how the thermophysical characteristics of polishing resins, the pressure, the grain size of the abrasive being used, the rotational rate, and the oscillation frequency of the processing tool affect the process of mechanical and chemomechanical polishing of zinc selenide and sulfide and the quality of the resulting surfaces. An algorithm has been developed for the computer recognition of defects on micrographs of the polished surfaces of the zinc chalcogenides. The quantitative characteristics of the defects on the images of the polished surface of the zinc chalcogenides are obtained as functions of the process parameters of the mechanical and chemomechanical polishing.
