Paper Abstract

Ceramics technologies were successfully applied to a series of lightweight mirrors with different sizes and requirements. Several joining and optical surface optimizations were applied. Besides the classical rib-structured mirrors also the application of sandwich mirrors with Cesic foam and/or honeycomb structures are going to be tested. For all processes relatively simple straightforward processes can be applied which keeps the products relatively cost-effective.
