Optical Fabrication and Metrology of Aspheric and Freeform Mirrors, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Optical Fabrication and Metrology of Aspheric and Freeform Mirrors, Phase I
The requirement for cost effective manufacturing and metrology of large optical surfaces is instrumental for the success of future NASA programs such as LISA, WFIRST and IXO. OptiPro's UltraForm Finishing (UFF) is a sub-aperture compliant wheel and belt type polishing process for rapid material removal from the ground state to a finished optic. More »
