Abstract
Cesic -- a trademark of ECM for carbon-fiber reinforced silicon carbide -- allows relatively quick and cheap manufacturing of components because the components can be shaped with conventional tools in a milling and/or drilling process of the greenbody material. Through a joining process and our new development of optical surfaces based on a slurry cladding technology, Cesic allows for a direct up-scaling of structures and optical surfaces to large-size applications and systems. The size of the structures and mirrors that can be manufactured is limited only by the scale of the available furnaces facilities, the largest of which currently is 2.4 m in diameter.
