Paper Abstract

Magneto-Rheological Finishing (MRF®) was originally targeted at the portion of the optical component market that required ultra-high precision levels and/or challenging geometries, e.g., aspheres. While it has certainly shown significant capability and widespread adoption for both of these applications, many of the installed MRF machines are being used to finish plano and spherical optics in the medium (λ/4) to high (λ/10) precision range.
