Carbon Foam Optical Benches

CFOAM® Carbon Foam’s unique combination of thermal and mechanical properties makes it an especially attractive material for space-borne sensor system optical benches.

CFOAM® carbon foam optical bench.

CFOAM® carbon foam, because of its low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) and high specific stiffness, offers an alternative material which for the first time makes possible optical benches that are sturdy, high temperature, and lightweight.

CFOAM® carbon foam’s unique combination of mechanical and thermal properties, coupled with the fact that it does not outgas, also makes it an especially attractive material for space-borne sensor system optical benches.
