Abstract

Computer controlled polishing of large optics has required complex and expensive tooling, which is impractical at the smaller scale. This paper describes the simulation of a simple aspheric polishing regime using a large active lap, and its embodiment in a new generalised aspheric polishing machine for instrumentation optics.
