Hi folks. Not expecting much of a response (specialist area) but I'll try. Does anyone know how to inspect mirrors for cosmetic defects?? The HMD project I'm working involves CRT driven combiners, and from that I've become well acquainted with MIL-PRF-13830 on display eyepieces. A colleague is asking about an associated product which instead projects the images on to a display visor, and how the mirror that projects the image can be assessed most appropriately. Since 1997, all the Military Standards for optical assemblies seem to be rolled into MIL-PRF-13830, which I see as more of a standard for transparent assemblies, combiners, etc. Further, although mirrors are addressed in Appendix B, the only inspection options it gives is rear illuminating the item (i.e. in tranmission), or from above (inspection from scattered light). There appears to be nothing to show how a mirror should be validated for acceptance. Anyone out there in the aerospace industry that specialises in mirrors? How do you assess your product for quality? Many thanks in advance.
