NGST IFU Prototype

Slit/Pupil Mirror Design

original design
Original Design
  • Both Pupil and Slit mirrors required raster grinding to produce freeform surfaces in monolithic substrate
  • Full tolerance analysis and specification produced

Pupil Mirror

Slit Mirror

interim design
Interim Design
  • IFU re-designed to eliminate need to use raster (freeform) grinding
  • Compromise in output slit performance (each “slitlet” focuses in different position in focal plane)
  • Considered easier by LFM to manufacture
interim design pupil mirror
Interim Design – Pupil Mirror
  • Pupil Array Design
    • Zerodur Substrate
    • Monolithic Construction
    • Toleranced
    • Full Specification produced
    • Cost Estimate ~€12,000
interim design pupil mirror1
Interim Design – Pupil Mirror
  • Slit Design
    • Construction as for pupil mirror
    • Fully Toleranced and specification produced
    • Cost estimate ~€12,000
issues with manufacture
Issues With Manufacture
  • Development of Raster Grinding of Zerodur still in early stages of development
  • Proposed a “simplified” IFU design to use line contact method of grinding
  • IFU re-designed to accommodate line contact method of manufacture (but…)
issues still remaining
Issues Still Remaining
  • Steps between Pupil/Slit facets will cause problems when grinding (unable to control quality/shape of surface close to step)
  • Either:
    • Larger gaps between facets
    • Modified grinding wheel (experimental)
interferometry test component
Interferometry (test component)
  • This should have a picture of the interferometry data however including it crashes my laptop
  • Aperture 4mm x 6mm
  • Spherical – ROC = 66.2mm
  • PV : 0.174
  • rms : 0.023
next stages zerodur optics
Next Stages (Zerodur Optics)
  • Produce spherical “proof of concept” monolithic mirror
  • Toroid production tests
  • Tackle issue of stepped facets
  • Produce line contact ground components
  • Develop raster grinding techniques
timescale for development
Timescale For Development
  • To develop repeatable/reliable process for production of monolithic components in Zerodur (line contact method with steps between facets)

– not possible before August 03

  • This gives a problem with IFU schedule
  • Develop IFU system with replacement metal (Aluminium) Pupil and Slit arrays
  • Perform all warm/vibration tests with metal components – replace with Zerodur when techniques fully developed
  • Durham shall provide metal components (already have much experience with GNIRS IFU)
  • Pursue Zerodur components in parallel
