Abstract

Large-aperture aspheric and freeform fused silica optics are widely used in the high power laser system such as Inertial Confinement Fusion system for their high quality optical characteristics. Because of its low efficiency and distortion for form accuracy, traditional conformal polishing method is unacceptable to remove the thick sub-surface damage layer induced by grinding stage. Thus, atomspheric inductively coupled plasma processing based on chemical reaction is proposed as a non -contact, high-removal-rate solution to the problem. In the paper, a hybrid five-axis machine tool is designed as a platform of plasma processing, including mechanism design and analysis, control system design, and sensor monitoring integration. Meanwhile, trial processing test is conducted and analysed as a feedback to the system design for stability and better performance.
