Paper Abstract

Latest progress on Tinsley methods are described for faster stress mirror polishing of the Thirty Meter Telescope primary mirror segments. These methods are outlined, and full scale segment data results are presented. The Tinsley SMP process complements additional processes at ITT Industries Space Systems, with the potential to effectively optically finish all TMT segments.
