Paper Abstract

The state of the thin axial symmetric elastic mirror under deformation tension is considered in approximation of the thin membrane theory. The solution of the equations is presented here describing the mirror's distortions under both the pressure applied across the film and the stretching forces along the film. To study optical quality of the flexible mirror's surface, the calculations were performed of energy angular distribution of the reflected radiation (for incident plane-front beam) in the focal plane of the elastic mirror.
