Paper Abstract

This paper describes a loose abrasive grinding technique as applied to Itek's computer controlled optical surfacing (CCOS) process. The intent of the new approach is to make large optics fabrication more timely and efficient. This is done by eliminating the long polishing cycle and supplementing it with microgrinding.
