interferometrically derived distribution of material removal for an
axisymmetric MR Jet, which impinges normal to a plane glass surface,
coincides well with the radial distribution of rate of work calculated
using computational fl uid dynamics (CFD) modeling. Polishing results
support the assertion that the MR Jet fi nishing process may produce
high precision surfaces on glasses and single crystals. The technology
is most attractive for the finishing of complex shapes like freeform
optics, steep concaves and cavities."
