Abstract
Thirty Meter Telescope’s Tertiary Mirror Cell Assembly (TMTM3-CA) will be manufactured in Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP). To reduce the risk of fabricating TMTM3, a prototype made of Zerodur with a d/t ratio of 72 is planned to be polished. Here the focus is on the design scheme of the prototype’s optical manufacturing support system. Firstly the number of support points was estimated, then structural design scheme for equal-force polishing support system are drawn, and finally layout optimization of support points was carried out. As its high performance and efficiency, the work will be beneficial to manufacturing large thin mirrors.
