Thin-shelled composite mirrors have been recently proposed for use as deformable mirrors in optical systems. Large-diameter deformable composite mirrors can be used in the development of active optical zoom systems. We present the fabrication, testing, and modeling of a prototype 0.2 m diameter carbon fiber reinforced polymer mirror for use as a deformable mirror. In addition, three actuation techniques have been modeled and will be presented.
