Abstract
We have carried out a trial production of the large-format (n=11) image slicer unit for a possible future mid-infrared instrument on the TMT aiming to verify its technical feasibility. The key elements in our trial production are the monolithic large-format slice mirrors and the monolithic large-format pupil mirrors. The results of our trial production of those key elements based on the ultra high-precision cutting techniques and the assembly of the large-format image slicer unit are presented in this paper.
