31 May 2017 Deformation-free rim for the primary mirror of telescope having sub-second resolution
Author Affiliations +
The work is devoted to the method of mounting and surface shape measurement of the primary mirror of ARCA telescope, intended for the Sun observation in EUV wavelength range. Calculation of mirror’s deformation due to weight is carried out and a method of its experimental determination in interferometer is proposed. The method of deformation-free installation of mirror into the telescope is proposed. Impact shocks and vibrations, arising during missile launch, is analyzed, and an optimal size of bridges in the rim is determined. Calculations of the mirror deformation due to temperature difference in the telescope on the Earth's orbit and its influence on the resolution of the telescope are conducted. The stresses arising in epoxy adhesive due to temperature changes and due to starting shocks are simulated.
