China gains unprecedented achievement in developing large aperture mirror

China has gained significant scientific and technological achievements in the 40 years of reform and opening-up, the large aperture mirror, a core component of an optical observation system, is an example. The 4.03-meter diameter mirror, an important tool for deep space and astronomical observation, is developed by Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The silicone carbide spherical optical mirror measures 1.6 tons. The success came after the institute was poised to meet the country’s urgent demand in homegrown large-scale optical instruments in 2009.
