Project Description

Ultra-Lightweight Optical Components for FTS Instruments, Phase I
NASA is pursuing novel technology for FTS instruments. The use of the conventional actuator technology is limited by the weight of optical components. The innovation of this Phase I lies in the application of composite membrane optics technology to device applications. In particular, ultra-lightweight retroreflectors will be manufactured in Phase I. Phase II will integrate this novel technology with stiff actuators. More »
