Abstract
The Optimax VIBE process is a full-aperture, conformal polishing processincorporating high frequency motion that rapidly removes sub-surfacedamage in a VIBE pre-polish step and eliminates mid-spatial frequency(MSF) errors created by deterministic polishing in a VIBE finishing step.This Phase I feasibility study will focus on the VIBE finishing step toremove undesirable MSF errors while at the same time maintaining thedesired low spatial frequency form accuracy.
