The material fused silica, as well as other brittle-hard materials such as glass ceramics, have great potential for use in a wide range of applications due to their special material properties. The technical advantages of these materials require sophisticated processing technologies, including polishing steps, in order to be able to use these interesting materials advantageously. In addition, a current trend in modern optical manufacturing is the use of free-form surfaces and monolithic components that combine several optical and mechanical functions in one part. Novel or improved processes are needed in order to meet future requirements for resource-saving and effective production methods at the same time.
