    Abstract

    The application of electrostatic techniques has been investigated as a repulsion system to keep dust off mirrors that might be used in high power laser systems. A demonstration unit for a 30 cm mirror was built and shipped to Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico as part of the program.
