Paper Abstract

Automated optimum design techniques based on nonlinear programming methods can be applied to the design of large, lightweight mirrors. Requirements of general purpose finite element programs with optimization capabilities, and specific design issues related to optics are presented. Examples lightweight mirror designs illustrate the benefit of optimization tools.
