Abstract

A method is proposed for polishing fast aspherics with a lap whose shape is continuously changed under computer control as it moves over a rigid mirror blank. The required changes of radius, astigmatism and coma in a circular lap are made with edge bending levers and tensioning members with screw actuators. This method of bending has been demonstrated in the laboratory.
