Abstract:

Previous work at Optimax has demonstrated capability to manufacture geometrically complex freeform optics through further developments in sub-aperture polishing. Furthermore, the novel Optimax VIBE smoothing process finished optics, composed of polycrystalline ceramics, to a very fine surface roughness (~1-2nm RMS) without grain highlighting and preferential removal. This proposal builds off previous successes by extending figure correction to more complex geometries, eliminating grain highlighting on freeform shapes, and reducing cost and time of manufacturing polycrystalline ceramic freeform optics.
