 Abstract: Space-based optical systems must be made from lightweight materials which can withstand significant acceleration and temperature changes. Materials such as ZERODUR®, ULE® (Ultra Low Expansion material) and silica are all potentially suitable. Depending on the specific requirements of the optical system and the transmissive or reflective nature of the optical layout these materials can be used by themselves or together to fabricate optical benches. The geometrical layouts of these optical systems are often very complicated and the requirements for mechanical stability very stringent, thus jointing components presents a challenge. In this paper we present developments of a novel chemical bonding process, originally invented at Stanford University for bonding silica components for the optical telescope for the Gravity Probe B mission. Colloquially called silicate bonding, this process utilizes hydroxide catalysis to join optical components to optical mounts to obtain high stability whilst accommodating the requirement for precise alignment procedures.
