Paper Abstract

There is a wide spectrum of optical systems contemplated for use in future astronomy missions. At Itek, the systems range from the large, lightweight, deployable optics required for the large deployable reflector (LDR) to the precision of grazing incidence x-ray optics for the Advanced X-ray Astrophisical Facility (AXAF). This paper describes some of the tech-nological initiatives that Itek has developed to enhance the manufacturability and the measurement of the surface quality of the spectrum of optical assemblies to be manufactured for the astronomical telescopes.
