Abstract

Surface plates and blocking tools are commonly made of granite because of its good stability. But how stable is the granite, and which type of material is optimal? We have explored several materials manufacturing processes for a 4-m aspheric reference surface that would serve as a tool for laying up composite optics. In this paper, we discuss the materials selection, stability to thermal and moisture effects, and parameters for processing the surface to give sub-micron accuracy and stability.
