Fiscal Year: 2009
Title: A Low Cost Light Weight Polymer Derived Ceramic Telescope Mirror
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX09CF39P
Award Amount: $99,933.00
 

Abstract:

The primary purpose of this proposal is to develop and demonstrate a new technology for manufacturing an ultra-low-cost precision optical telescope mirror which can be scaled up for use in very large UV/optical and/or infrared telescopes. The Phase 1 deliverable will be a 0.25 meter precision mirror. Its optical performance assessment and all data on the processing and properties of its substrate material will be determined. The unique manufacturing processes employed allow for integration of mirror and support features, significantly increasing both cost reduction and quality improvement potential.
