Abstract

Large aperture lenses with high surface quality are demanded for professional imaging products such as single-lens reflex cameras and astronomical telescopes. Large aperture optical lenses are shaped by ultra-precision grinding and finished by prolonged polishing. However, the prolonged polishing process leads to deterioration of the form accuracy. In order to reduce the amount of polishing, ductile-mode ultra-precision grinding is demanded. In this study, a rubber bonded wheel, which has a low elastic modulus, is used for grinding of spherical glass BK7, and influence of the hardness of the rubber bonded wheel and abrasive chip thickness on brittle fracture and surface roughness are experimentally investigated.
