Edge-control on mirror segments

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We outline requirements for mirror segment edges for extremely large telescopes, and introduce the new CNC machine for process verification. We review a promising approach for edge-control using the Precessions process, and report progress.
