Paper Abstract

In late 1982 the Optical Sciences Center decided to purchase a numerical control optical generator. The purpose was to support the work of Roger Angel's mirror blank fabrication work at Steward Observatory'-4 and to generate the mold segments for use in fabricating carbon fiber-reinforced plastic panels for the Sub Millimeter Telescope, a joint project of the University of Arizona and the Max Planck Institut fur Radioastronomie in Bonn, West Germany.
