Paper Abstract

The outlooks and abilities of creation of telescopes having passive lightweighted mirrors are analyzed. It is shown that on the base of newest achievements of technology, in particular, of silicon carbide application, the creation of diffraction quality mirrors of diameter not less than 3 meter is possible. The state-of-the-art and trends of works being performed in Vavilov State Optical Institute in the field of lightweighted beryllium, silicon, aluminum alloys, silicon carbide mirrors are printed.
