Paper Abstract

A composite mirror consisting of a carbon fibre reinforced fused quartz(CFRFQ) substrate and a fused quartz mirror surface which could be polished to a high precision on the surface figure was prepared. The experimental results indicate that the randomly oriented CFRFQ with no matrix cracking due to thermal expansion mismatch have a improved mechanical and thermal endurance and the interfacical bonding between the substrate and the fused quartz mirror is very densification. It is estimathd that this type of composite mirror would be a potential material for future space telescope.
