Space instrumentation - EUCLID
AMOS fabricated a high-quality 800 mm lightweight mirror for a military space application (wavefront quality better than /50 rms in the visible).
It is a demonstrator for space applications :
- Standard zerodur material
- 800 mm diameter
- lightweight (80 kg/m² area density)
- optical quality 15 nm RMS WFE
ON FOCUS - Diamond TurningAdvanced Mechanical and Optical Systems (AMOS) manufactures small optical pieces by diamond turning mainly for infrared applications but also, after post polishing, for visible or ultraviolet. Concave or convex mirrors up to 500mm can be machined with extreme asphericities....
