Paper Abstract

Today the peak of the conventional method of telescope design is the space telescope named after Hubble (2,4 m-diameter of the primary mirror). Further increase of the input-aperture diameter of telescopes requires the application of new architectures of their design based on the recent progress in optics and the development of super-light mirrors. The paper is devoted to development of the concept of a new-generation membrane primary mirror for extra-atmospheric imaging telescopes basing on the recent progress in non-linear technique of correction for dynamic distortions.
