22 December 2003 Kodak AMSD mirror program: overview and cryo test results
Author Affiliations +
Kodak AMSD mirror processing was successfully completed, and the mirror was cryo tested at NASA. This paper reviews the entire AMSD program at Eastman Kodak Company from mirror blank production to mirror processing and metrology. To achieve the most information possible with respect to the flight configuration planned for JWST, the original Kodak AMSD test plan was modified. This change in plan is discussed and how it impacts the future path for AMSD. The AMSD Phase III program is also discussed and the status of that program is provided. In addition, this paper discusses performance of the mirror at cryo temperatures.
