Fabrication of ultrahigh-precision hemispherical mirrors for quantum-optics applications

Higginbottom, Daniel; Campbell, Geoff; Araneda, G.; Fang, Fengzhou; Colombe, Yves; Buchler, Ben; Lam, Ping Koy


High precision, high numerical aperture mirrors are desirable for mediating strong atom-light coupling in quantum optics applications and can also serve as important reference surfaces for optical metrology. In this work we demonstrate the fabrication of highly-precise hemispheric mirrors with numerical aperture NA = 0.996. The mirrors were fabricated from aluminum by single-point diamond turning using a stable ultra-precision lathe calibrated with an in-situ white-light interferometer. Our...[Show more]
