Abstract:

SiC-based materials exhibit excellent thermal, mechanical, and optical properties. In addition, excellent polishability has been established for CVD-SiC. The use of CVD-SiC in optical applications requires the joining of dissimilar materials. Thisproposal offers an integrated approach to fabricate optical structures. No conventional joining is required. Ultralightweight, extremely stable structures can be produced. A functionlly-graded (FGM) approach is implemented to minimize the residualstresses. Chemical Vapor Reaction (CVR) processing is used to form an optical quality (2 Angstroms rms) SiC surface. Specific laser optics evaluation will be performed. Up to 18
