Composite mirrors for the MST telescope

Glass-aluminum composite mirrors for the MST (Medium-sized telescope):

New and original technology used in production of such mirrors was developed at the IFJ PAN and the product’s trial series has successfully passed tests in Germany and France. The mirrors were tested under natural conditions – they were installed on the MST telescope prototype at DESY near Berlin. In many of the tests carried out, Polish mirrors show superiority over competing products from France or Italy.

Different variations of these mirrors are considered depending on the production costs.
