Abstract:

This study investigates the requirements for making ultra-lightweight mirrors of Ultra-Low Expansion ULE fused silica by frit bonding. It includes a manufacturing assessment of the facilities needed to scale the mirror technology to 4 meters in diameter. It also includes a front surface flux loading thermal test of a .5M diameter frit bonded ULE mirror. The test was supported by detailed modeling and analysis.
