The Archimeidon project is based on an original and unique technique of glass production. It uses centrifugal and gravity forces to shape a parabola when it is in the liquid state. The glass is then rapidly cooled into a solid state. It is processed at a temperature of 950°C in a machined silica- plaster mould, and this process of machining moulds, fusing, cooling and working the glass is followed the exact cutting and mechanical polishing of the resulting surface. Aluminum and silica are then applied. The process is really similar
to the cutting and polishing of telescope mirrors used for astronomy.
