At more than 10 million US dollars, the HST primary mirror was a very costly optical surface. In contrast to conventional glass and ceramic mirror substrate, the Space-Forschungsgruppe have made ground based research in subject of carbon fibre composite technologies since eight years. ln the last two years matrix materials from Ciba-Geigy promise to take place instead of large optical areas with a very high rade of mass and a long term of production.
