New technologies for the actuation and controls of large aperture lightweight quality mirrorsThis paper presents a set of candidate components: MEMS based large stroke (>100 microns) ultra lightweight (~0.01 gm) discrete inch worm actuator technology, and a distributed actuator technology, in the context of a novel lightweight active flexure-hinged substrate concept that uses the nanolaminate face sheet.
