There is historically a gap between the technologies of optical systems and of radio frequency antennas. The gap is, of course, man made because the electromagnetic spectrum is a continuum. The recent attention of radio frequency users to large apertures and small wavelengths and of optical instrument users to the infrared regime has erased the gap. One of the results is that some of the advanced concepts for large antennas in space become useful for infrared telescopes.
