Abstract
In previous experiments involving ion figuring of optical components, repeated machining resulted in little to no improvement in workpieces due to a variation in the removal. We demonstrate that the variation in removal is due to insufficiently large machining limits and that such variation is common to all Gaussian removal processes. Once larger limits are chosen, successive machining iterations improves workpiece contour significantly.
