Abstract
Optimum structural design techniques have been used in the design of lightweight mirror and optical system for the past few years. Their application has been limited to the use of standard structural response as design criteria. This paper addresses the use of optical performance measures as design criteria within the optimum structural design loop. These optical measures could be any Zernike coefficient, the residual RMS or the peak-to-valley after any Zernike term has been removed.
