Abstract

As the development of modern optical technology, especially space optical science, more high precision mirrors with large apertures are needed. But it is difficult to manufacture high precision large aperture optical components. The method of optical polishing using an ultra-precise bonnet is based upon the technology of computer controlled optical surfacing. A bonnet filled with air is applied as a precise polishing tool which is flexible and able to adapt itself well to the shape of the part, which is superior to other polishing methods. A material removing model of bonnet precessed polishing is established according to kinematic principle based on the Preston equation. The model is modified in terms of Hertz contact theory using the physical characteristics of polishing bonnet tools. A satisfactory result was obtained for one of the surfaces of a wedge mirror with a diameter of 570mm. The resulted PV and RMS parameters are 1/8 λ and 1/75 λ respectively.
