Paper Abstract

For use in large mirrors in outer space, where low mass is a critical need, 3 D-CFK developments are under our investigation since 8 years. Precision replication future technologys taken from a negative form are our candidates for the ESO, VLT monolithic primarys. In our option we use a Nasmyth Focus, because of mirror stability.
