Abstract
The University of Arizona has initiated the construction of a precision generator for larger diameter optical surfaces (large optical generator). This LOG machine will be capable of generating a rotationally symmetric primary mirror of up to 7.3 meters diameter, and segments of mirrors to 10 meters and larger diameters. Initially the machine will be used for generation of molds for a sub-millimeter telescope array, but is eventually intended for wide application mirrors of visual wavelength accuracy.
