The reflectometer is dedicated to monitoring the quality of high-grade optical coatings. It is a portable optical calibrator that allows its use in the laboratory and also in the telescope. The device measures specular reflection and scattering with high repeatability using seven wavelengths ranging from UV to the near IR.
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 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.
