Metal and especially aluminum mirrors have wide applications in the optical industry due to their desirable properties, hence requiring very high polished surfaces. One of the methods of preparing aluminum mirrors is single-point diamond turning. In this research, the manufacturing process of 6061-grade aluminum mirrors has been studied using diamond turning and consequent polishing process in order to reach surfaces with acceptable optical properties. In the first part, the effective range of turning parameters was determined. The results showed that the feed values less than 5 µm/rev, the cutting edge radius between 0.2 and 0.8 mm, and the rotational speed of 2250 rpm have a greater effect on the surface roughness. In the second part of the research, initially, the turning process was performed with effective parameters and then the polishing process was applied as the final finishing process. Surface finish is evaluated by surface roughness and surface interferometry parameters. The results showed that the smaller surface roughness after the diamond tool turning process led to higher optical properties after the final polishing process. The lowest PV value equal to 0.293 µm was obtained by diamond turning with 1.5 µm/rev and a cutting edge radius of 0.8 mm.
