Paper Abstract

Two additions to the popular "Metal Mirror Selection Guide" are proposed. To aid in specifying metal mirrors, some common terms and uses must be resolved. Mirror surface finish, contour, and outline shape, as well as aspect ratio, all affect both prices and quality. Part one definitizes these issues. Proper mounts for metal optics present a seemingly impossible design problem. Common design faults and their affects on optics present severe obstacles to proper system function. A well proven approach - called dual interfacing, has proven to be unusually effective in correcting these problems. Part two of this paper discusses and illustrates the problem as well as the working solution.
