Paper Abstract

The LAMP program which represents a major milestone in the development of the technology to make very large aperture optical systems is described. The program integrates automated optical fabrication and test techniques with real time wavefront sensors, computers, and software, and advanced control theory. The program demonstrates that mirrors greater than 10 m can be made in segments and be capable of actively correcting wavefront errors.
