Background: The computer-controlled optical surfacing (CCOS) technology, which has advantages of high certainty and high convergence rate for surface error correction, has been widely applied in the manufacture of large-aperture optical elements. However, due to the convolution effect, the mid-spatial-frequency (MSF) errors are difficult to be restrained in CCOS.
Methods: Consequently, this paper presents a theoretical and experimental investigation on the generation of MSF errors, aiming to reveal its main influencing factors, and figure out the optimized parameters and the controlling strategies for restraining MSF errors. A surface topography simulation model for the generation of MSF errors was established first. Based on which, orthogonal simulation experiments were designed and conducted for the following three parameters, i.e., tool influence function (TIF), path type, and path spacing. Subsequently, the proposed model was verified through the practical polishing experiments.
Results and conclusions: The results demonstrated the influencing degree of the parameters and the optimized combination of parameters, and provided process guidance for restraining MSF errors in CCOS.
Key words: Mid-spatial-frequency error / Convolution effect / Residual ripple / Power spectral density
