Project summary

Purpose of the Project: To apply scientific knowledge accumulated by IA "LZOS" in design of space target finding systems, as well as aiming of missiles and powerful striking a blow lasers of flying objects to creation optical elements made of special glass-types, development of new treatment methods of optical parts of civil purpose.

It is proposed to develop:

- scientific basis, technology and equipment for cooking new types of glass on the basis of fluorphosphate compounds with the use of platinum or glass-carbon pots as well as utilising processes characteristic to non-condensed systems;

- composition and production practice of oxigen-free chalcogenide glass, applicable in manufacture of lightguides, transparent in IR range of l-14 mm;

- scientific basis and technology for dimensional ion-beam machining of high-precision optical surfaces with material removal in zones at Angstrom level;

- treatment technique of high-precision astronomical mirrors made by zone retouching with small-size tools including treatment of mirrors made of non-traditional solicon-carbide type materials.
