CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastics) has physical properties superior to other candidate materials for main mirrors of space telescopes. Nonetheless, practical use of CFRP mirrors have not yet been achieved except developing models [1]. The primary reason is considered that surface accuracy of CFRP mirrors has not satisfied severe requirements for visible or near-infrared light space telescopes. Those applications require surface accuracy of nm level. The second reason is performance… CONTINUE READING
