Paper Abstract

Optical systems intended for use in the near-space environment have special requirements for their light-controlling baffle systems; to date these requirements have not been fully met. A program of work to produce and evaluate new, all-metal, baffle materials which are optically effective, radiation hardened, and immune to the challenges of near-space is described and a very promising baffle material is identified.
