Abstract

The computer controlled polisher uses a small grinding–polishing tool assembly which travels over the workpiece surface under computer control. The machine has been used to fabricate successfully a number of difficult substrates including a beryllium mirror, a nonrotationally symmetric corrector plate, and a flexible aspheric mirror. These efforts have demonstrated the capability of CCP to fabricate 1/15 wave surfaces for difficult substrates.
