Paper Abstract

A very compact tip/tilt mirror has been developed for the Wide-Field/Planetary Camera II, a science instrument that is to be installed in the Hubble Space Telescope to restore the Hubble's imaging performance. The Articulating Fold Mirror (AFM) is a space qualified, ultraviolet compatible device that incorporates many advanced features including a highly lightweighted mirror and electrostrictive solid state actuators that provide precise and repeatable open loop performance. The design, fabrication, and testing of the AFM are described.
