A study on optimum grinding factors for aspheric convex

Mar 01, 2007 Therefore, it is most important to achieve the same local removal depth over all points on the aspheric surface in the polishing process, which improves the surface roughness. Although the aspheric surface micro-lens machining has been studied, ultra-precise grinding of aspheric or mold core has not been fully studied.
