这张照片显示的是马歇尔航天飞行中心(MSFC)的领头钻石调谐器韦斯·布朗,他是一位使用金刚石刀具切割金属的专家,检查模具的物理特性,以确保其6000多个凹槽的均匀性。这个特大号的铜盘是在MSFC的空间光学制造和技术中心(SOMTC)制造的,是一个制造高分辨率显示器屏幕的特殊模具。这个主模子将被用来制作其他几个模子,每个模子能够形成数百个屏幕,这些屏幕有一种称为菲涅尔透镜的透镜。菲涅耳透镜的重量比传统光学器件轻得多,它有多个同心凹槽,每个凹槽形成一个精确的角度,这些凹槽共同产生聚焦和投影图像所需的曲率。MSFC作为金刚石车削技术的领导者,领导着美国宇航局的空间光学制造技术发展。用于制造这种模具的机器是MSFC的SOMTC的许多同类设备之一。

This photograph shows Wes Brown, Marshall Space Flight Center's (MSFC's) lead diamond tuner, an expert in the science of using diamond-tipped tools to cut metal, inspecting the mold's physical characteristics to ensure the uniformity of its more than 6,000 grooves. This king-size copper disk, manufactured at the Space Optics Manufacturing and Technology Center (SOMTC) at MSFC, is a special mold for making high resolution monitor screens. This master mold will be used to make several other molds, each capable of forming hundreds of screens that have a type of lens called a fresnel lens. Weighing much less than conventional optics, fresnel lenses have multiple concentric grooves, each formed to a precise angle, that together create the curvature needed to focus and project images. The MSFC leads NASA's space optics manufacturing technology development as a technology leader for diamond turning. The machine used to manufacture this mold is among many one-of-a-kind pieces of equipment of MSFC's SOMTC.
