|Additional Information:||The work comes from an EPSRC supported research project, with industrial support. The project review rated the project highly. Further industrial evaluation was done after the project ended. Knowledge transfer has also occurred through presentations to IGT Members at Members Technical Meetings. Ductile grinding is necessary to prevent brittle fracture and associated cracking in the grinding of precision optics, but currently results in low removal rates. By using CVD techniques to grow diamonds with a specified facet pattern and higher concentration than conventional diamond wheels, elevated removal rates are possible.|
