Simulation of mid-spatials from the grinding process

M. Pohl, R. Börret


This paper focuses on the simulation of the creation of mid-spatial frequencies (mid-spatials) during the grinding process of optical components. The goal is to simulate this generation process and determine the correlating grinding parameters for mid-spatials. On this base, grinding parameters which lead to less mid-spatials could be determined.
