Paper Abstract

This paper presents an interesting view of beryllium and aluminum-beryllium optics from Russia. It covers the basic design philosophy of why selecting beryllium and compared Russian beryllium to other optical materials. Fabrication processing and equipment are discussed and presented using photographs. Detailed property data for Russian materials is presented in both pure and alloy forms. Unique casting capabilities combining beryllium with aluminum for large optical structures is disclosed along with photographs of actual hardware produced.
