Abstract : The patent application describes a liquid cooled mirror structure having a body, inner plate and face sheet. The body has longitudinal channels therein, the inner plate has narrow channels therein perpendicular to the longitudinal channels and the face sheet has a dense pattern of grooves therein perpendicular to the narrow channels. In operation coolant flows horizontally through the longitudinal channels, vertically through the narrow channels and horizontally through the grooves thereby cooling the face sheet by providing a high intrinsic impedance to the coolant flow, and high specific heat transfer coefficient, with a a minimum of pressure drop.
