This paper will discuss how AOC R-Theta machine can produce superior aspheric surfaces in terms of tool marks and surface figure irregularities compared with other cascading (point to point) diamond turning surfaces. It will also discuss how easy and inexpensive it is to produce aspheric surfaces, which requires absolutely none, or little post polishing for lowscatter application.
