  • The structures, performances and applications of large scale lightweight SiC mirror blank were introduced. Two fabricating process dominating in our country, namely gel-casting forming followed by reaction sintering(RB-SiC) and Sintered Silicon Carbide(SSiC) via pressure molding and pressureless sintering, were elaborated which were adopted to produce 1.45 m lightweight SiC mirrors. By comparing the performances, testing results and optical properties SiC mirrors fabricated via two different processes mentioned above, we analyse the problems existing in the fabricating process to further improve the development of large scale lightweight SiC mirror.
