Abstract
ION BEAM FIGURING TECHNIQUES WILL BE APPLIED TO FIGURE ASPHERE OPTICAL ELEMENTS. A MIRROR WILL BE ASPHERIZED TO REMOVE THE R(0)6 ZERNIKE CONTRIBUTION TO CORRECT FOR THIRD-ORDER AND FIFTH-ORDER SPHERICAL ABBERRATION AND DEFOCUS. IN ADDITION, A PHASE CORRECTION PLATE WITH THE SAME OPTICAL CORRECTION WILL BE INVESTIGATED FOR FABRICATION. SIMULATED ION BEAM FIGURING OF MORE COMPLEX ELEMENTS WILL BE INVESTIGATED.
