Paper Abstract

Most of the mirror mounting literature has focused on small (less than 0.1 meters) or large (greater than 1 meter) mirrors. We will examine the theory and practice of mounting moderately sized mirrors (between 0.1 and 1 meter). Two examples will be taken from optical diagnostic systems designed for the National Ignition Facility (NIF). In both cases the mirrors were removable (not bonded in place). One of the examples will be for a mirror with a poor aspect ratio (i.e. diameter to thickness ratio greater than 15:1).
