Paper Abstract

Current methods for fabricating beryllium optics are both time consuming and too expensive for many production applications. This has sometimes resulted in the substitution of marginally acceptable materials which do not always deliver the required performance. The advent of net shape blank fabrication directly from powder, utilizing disposable tooling and the hot isostatic pressing process, has provided the breakthrough which enables the cost effective production of beryllium mirrors.
