abstract

Technology developed for computer-controlled mirror manufacturing is described. The polishing tool is equipped with electromagnetic force actuators to regulate the local polishing forces according to the measured mirror errors. Optical testing with the interferometric modification of the Hartmann test and a CCD-camera as a detector allow accurate and fast measurement with high sampling frequency. Air turbulence and vibration effects are minimized in the workshop which is blasted into the bedrock and equipped with good thermal insulation.
