Abstract
From the viewpoint of up-to-date requirements, fundamental scientific and technological problems arising in the design and manufacture of optical reflecting telescopes are formulated as compared to those of the refracting systems. Nontraditional materials, such as beryllium, silicon, and silicon carbide, are shown to be capable of successful competition with traditional optical materials for the telescope mirror. A brief overview is given of the development of beryllium-based mirrors.
