Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes the salient features of a telescope for the sub-mm wavelength region, which we have begun to design. Operating from a high and dry mountain the telescope will be used for astronomical observations in the atmospheric transmission windows between 350 μm and 3 mm wavelength. The surface accuracy will be ≤ 15 μm, the reflector diameter ≈ 10 m and the pointing accuracy 1". Extensive use of graphite epoxy material shall eliminate thermal deformations.
