Paper Abstract

The Space Optics Manufacturing Technology Center of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center is involved in the development of nickel and nickel alloy electroformed mirrors for rapid low cost production of space-based optical systems. The current state of the process is discussed for both Wolter type x-ray mirrors and normal incidence mirrors for visible and infrared applications.
