Fabrication of aspherics using a mathematical model for material removal.

Abstract

A mathematica model has been developed that predicts the aspheric surface that a typical optical surfacing machine will produce. The model, which combines two basic assumptions concerning material wear with the kinematics of the machine, has been verified experimentally for the grinding process. In regions of the surface where the tool extends beyond the… (More)
