    Abstract

    A comprehensive test programme has been implemented to enable the consideration of large refractive components with coating layers in the design of future satellite-based cosmic microwave background polarimetry missions. This requires understanding of systematic effects to an unprecedented level of precision, and validation of modelling tools and manufacturing techniques. We present the details of this study, and key results of the material and lens testing programme.
