We propose a novel approach, "faFJP", to the computer controlled polishing (CCP) of mini aspheres down to 0:2 mm. The generation of locallytunable, full-aperture footprints is accomplished by applying a Fluid Jet Polishing (FJP) beam larger than the full aperture being polished and varying the incident angle.
