A wide series of two-dimensional detectors of general purpose are available in the Optics Laboratory for taking images in the visible and near-infrared ranges of the spectrum. Among others, there are several SBIG, Xenics and Imaging Spectra cameras, which cover altogether from 400 to 1700 nm with different pixel formats.
The Optics Laboratory is specialized in the realization of all type of optical measurements, alignment and integration of instruments, prototype tests and characterization of components and optical systems in general.
The laboratory has the infrastructures and equipment to characterize astronomical sensors
The IAC Technology Division has the capacity for developing complete optical elements and systems from the design stages to manufacturing follow-up, integration and final verification.
Within its capability to develop optical instrumentation, the IAC has a deep knowledge and experience in the design, manufacture and verification of optical fibres and their applications.
