Abstract
In the proposed SBIR program Powdermet will demonstrate the feasibility of producing near net shape high modulus- high conductivity (1000Gpa, 1800 W/m.K) diamond reinforced SiC /syntactic SiC foam mirror structure. Powdermet will utilize an innovative combination of SiC microencapsulaion of diamond, carbon microballoon, CVD SiC coated diamond-filled preceramic polymer casting/curing/pyrolysis and then CVD coated SiC mirror reflecting surface with finish polishing technique to produce high conductivity, high stiffness, high modulus, better dimension stability, Low CTE mirror structure for ABL/EKV application
