Abstract
A thermally conductive, dimensionally stable optical bench has been fabricated from advanced composite materials for use at temperatures below 180 K (-93 degree(s)C). The optical bench comprises the main structure of the interferometer for the TES (Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer) instrument which will be part of the EOS CHEM satellite scheduled for launch in late 2002.
