Application ID: 70241

The Keck Telescope is a 10 meter diameter telescope with a Ritchey-Chretien optical design. It is noted for being one of the first large optical telescopes to utilize a lightweight segmented primary mirror. This tutorial demonstrates how to use built-in polygonal mirrors from the COMSOL Part Library to construct a model of the Keck Telescope segmented primary mirror.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
