Abstract
In the paper, the ballonet polishing process was introduced to fabricate the aspheric surface. And then the principle and structure of ballonet polishing tool are narrated firstly. Subsequently, the effects of the process parameters such as radius and size of the ballonet tool on aspheric optical component profile and polishing efficiency are analyzed in theory, and a mass of polishing experiments are carried out on a complex aspheric to validate them. Finally, the influencing rules of such effects of the ballonet polishing tool’s radius and size on the surface figure and efficiency in polishing aspheric optics are summarized. Moreover, the optimal technological parameters are achieved, which provide with significant references for practically machining different rotary symmetrical aspheric optical components.
