Fabrication of Freeforms
Optimax has developed a robust freeform optical fabrication CNC process that includes generation, high speed VIBE polishing, sub-aperture figure correction, surface smoothing and testing of freeform surfaces.
Optimax excels at grinding, polishing and coating precision optics quickly and reliably. We can deliver high precision optics in as little as one week.
Free-form surfaces are quickly becoming a desired and necessary shape for many refractive and reflective optical systems. Some examples of free-form shapes are toroids, ogives, and other conformal windows. In this paper, we will discuss the round-robin study of surface irregularity measurements of a free-form toroidal window.
