Abstract:

SiC-composites offer a paradigm shift in the area of large aperture, very low aerial density optics. In addition, MER has found novel solutions to the print-through problem. The fundamental issue addressed in this proposal is the performance of lightweight optics under a laser beam. Small (4" diameter) mirrors with aerial density varying from 2 - 15 Kg/m2 will be fabricated, analyzed and tested under laser conditions. In addition, a projection to very high energy laser condition will be made.
