The evaporator machine, located inside a clean room of class 7, is used for the production of deposits of thin films on optical surfaces for the manufacturing of mirrors, antireflective films, interferential filters, etc. The machine has a high vacuum chamber with a diffuser pump system and has a built-in electron gun that allows working with high temperature melting materials. It also has a system of multiple quartz crystals for monitoring the thickness of the deposition.
The Optical Coating Laboratory is used for depositing thin films onto optical surfaces
The aluminizing plant is used to replace the aluminum layer of the mirrors.
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.
