Abstract
The paper is aimed at obtaining the deformation results and optical aberration configurations of a spaceborne mirror made of ZERODUR® glass on a main plate with three isostatic mounts for a space Cassegrain telescope. On the rear side of the main plate four screws will be locked to fix the focal plane assembly. The locking modes for the four screws will be simulated as push and pull motions in the Z axis for simplification. The finite element analysis and Zernike polynomial fitting are applied to the whole integrated optomechanical analysis process. Under the analysis, three isostatic mounts are bonded to the neutral plane of the mirror. The deformation results and optical aberration configurations under six types of push and pull motions as well as self-weight loading have been obtained. In addition, the comparison between the results under push and pull motions with 0.01 mm and 0.1 mm displacements in Z axis will be attained.
