Paper Abstract

The ability to produce strain free mounts for metal mirrors is shown to be feasible by the application of four principles: o Mounting strain isolated from mirror surface o Mirror stiffer than mount o Mirror figured in "as mounted" strain condition o Mount tolerances equal to surface tolerances The application of precision diamond machining is shown to be advantageous in applying these principles. Several real mirrors are shown as examples.
