Paper Abstract

A plastic corner-cube reflector was designed for low cost and low mass; its total weight is less than 0.06 gram. The problems of making the die, forming, coating and testing are described, along with some applications. A mathematical model of the part, based on typical figure and angle errors, estimates beam divergence and return angle.
