Paper Abstract

Ion beam figuring is a deterministic optical fabrication technique which efficiency has been mainly demonstrated on large optics these last years. One of the disadvantages of ion figuring is the high surface temperature of the workpiece. Temperature aspects have already ben mentioned by some authors but are weakly detailed. Therefore thermal effects on BK7 and Zerodur, mainly surface figure distortions and surface temperature measurements, have been investigated here in more detail.
