Manufacture and test procedures

Abstract

Optical manufacture and testing is a vast subject which can only be dealt with as a review in the current chapter. Apart from many literature sources, I am particularly grateful for the generous information given during visits to the workshops of REOSC in Paris, Carl Zeiss in Oberkochen and Horst Kaufmann in Crailsheim. The former are two of the world’s major producers of large astronomical optics, the latter an example of an excellent small workshop capable of producing mirrors up to 1 m diameter. Information by post has also been generously supplied by R.E. Parks in Tucson, G. Lemaître in Marseilles, R. Angel in Tucson, Litton ITEK in Lexington, Eastman Kodak in Rochester, the Keck 10 m telescope development team and T. Korhonen in Turku. Much of this chapter reflects the technologies practised by these sources. Sincere thanks are also due to ESO, in particular to Philippe Dierickx, for valuable information concerning the production of the optics for the VLT.
