Silicon Carbide


Reaction Bonded SiC & MMCs

Silicon Carbide Mirrors

  • Directly Polished RB SiC for Lightweight Applications
  • Reaction Bonded SiC Mirror Substrates for HELs
  • Al/SiC MMC Mirrors for low CTE matching


Mirror Substrates and Optic Housings can both be fabricated in complex shapes and in Al/SiC MMCs.

Reaction Bonded (RB) Silicon Carbide

  • Lightweight Directly Polished Mirrors for Space-Based Telescopes
  • Aspheric & Spherical Mirror Substrates
  • Low Mass Laser Scanning Mirrors
  • Ribbed-Back SiC Mirror Substrates

Al/SiC Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs)

  • Large 2m Square Stage Structures
