  • Tantau, Mathias (Cranfield University, 2015-12)
    Roll-to-roll printing on continuous plastic films could enable the production of flexible electronics at high speed and low cost, but the granularity of feature sizes is limited by the system accuracy. Technologies such ...
  • Zhao, Gang (Cranfield University, 2014-09)
    The aims of this MSc research project are to investigate the application of aluminium for the main components of an ultra-precision spindle defined for use in R2R production systems and to produce a reel to reel rotary ...
  • Castelli, Marco (Cranfield University, 2012-10)
    In this thesis, the research and development of a novel rapid figuring procedure for large ultra-precise optics by Reactive Atom Plasma technology is reported. The hypothesis proved in this research is that a metre scale ...
  • O'Brien, William John (Cranfield University, 2011)
    The Reactive Atom Plasma® (RAP) process is a plasma chemical etching process. RAP was developed at RAPT Industries as a process for removing subsurface damage from silicon carbide optics. The process is being investigated ...
  • Kirkwood, L. (Cranfield University, 2013-02)
    Achievable cutting distance of a diamond tool during turning is finite and is a limiting factor in the size of component that can be turned. This limit is particularly problematic when attempting to turn brittle materials, ...
  • Lim, Chee Wang (Cranfield University, 2009-12)
    A dynamically optimal design is essential for a motion system to perform high speed operation without compromising its accuracy, settling time and vibration specification. Good design practice which accounts for dynamic ...
  • Raffles, Mark H. (Cranfield University, 2007)
    Driven by a requirement to extend the lifespan of self-aligning lined spherical bearings, this research investigates the use of Elid (electrolytic in-process dressing) as a method of improving ball surface finish. Elid ...
  • Parkins, Jonathon (Cranfield University, 2012-08)
    Laser assisted plasma processing (LAPP) is a novel extension to already established Reactive Atom Plasma (RAP) processing for atmospheric pressure dry chemical etching of silicon based materials; this is mainly applied for ...
  • Knuefermann, Markus M. W. (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Industrial and Manufacturing Science, 2003-11)
    The main aim of this work was the machining by hard turning of surfaces with optical surface quality. A numerical target had been set as a surface roughness Ra = 10nm. It has been shown that achieving roughness of that ...
  • Tonnellier, Xavier (Cranfield University, 2009-05)
    Large scale nuclear fusion and astronomy scientific programmes have increased the demand for large freeform mirrors and lenses. Thousands of one metre class, high quality aspherical optical components are required within ...
  • Yu, Nan (Cranfield University, 2016-10)
    In 2012, plasma figuring was proven to be an alternative solution for the fabrication of large scale ultra-precise optical surfaces. Indeed, plasma figuring was successfully demonstrated on a metre class glass surface. The ...
  • Georgiou, Charalambos Andrew (Cranfield University, 2011-05)
    Multi Axis Robots have traditionally been used in industry for pick and place, de-burring, and welding operations. Increasing technological advances have broadened their application and today robots are increasingly being ...
