Abstract
Sintered silicon carbide (SSiC) is becoming one of the most important materials for the optical mirrors due to its excellent specific stiffness (E/ρ) and demission stability (λ/α). However, it is difficult to fabricate the monolithic structure SSiC optical mirror with demission of larger than Φ1.5m because of process limitation. Joining of SSiC segments (brazing) provide a good solution to prepare large size mirror optics. However, compared with the uniform properties of the monolithic structure SSiC optical mirror, the brazed mirror is composed of two materials (SSiC segments and brazing material), so the performance of optical grinding and reliability of brazed optical mirrors become the focus. In this paper, the Φ300mm and Φ600mm brazed optical mirrors was used to evaluate the reliability of different conditions. Three kinds of environmental simulation tests, including thermal stability, thermal circle and random vibration were carried out. The evaluation results show that the temperature and vibration has no obvious effects on the surface figure (RMS) of the brazed optical mirrors.
