Closing In On Perfection

Abstract:
A new chapter is being written in the history of light manipulation. Lenses that return sight to the blind. Smaller ones, the size of a lentil, that make DVD and CD players possible. High-tech lights in cars and homes that can outlast old-fashioned bulbs by decades. What those products have in common is that they, or their enabling components, are made by ultraprecision machine tools.
