Title: Affordable, Precision Reflector Mold Technology (PDRT08-029)
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX09CE03P
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

Advances in replication mold technology that reduce material costs, grinding time, and polishing time would enable fabrication of large, precision molds and possibly optics at 50-75% lower cost. Mold cost savings could be applied to other aspects of a telescope mission's technology development and demonstration efforts to reduce large aperture far infrared telescope areal density and improve optical technical performance.
