From the R&D department, we move to our production area where we assemble, align and test all our spectrometers. We have four spectrometer platforms, FREEDOM for compactness, ROCK for high sensitivity, EAGLE for high resolution and our newest platform, PEBBLE, for ultra-compact yet high performance. You can read more about these platforms here.
The heart of our spectrometers is our high efficiency transmission gratings that we manufacture ourselves. Our gratings are made in fused silica in our class 10 clean room – which is our next stop in the tour. You have to suit up with full clean room suit to enter and then you’ll be able to follow how we clean, spin-coat, expose, etch, and test the gratings during production. You can read more about our many different kinds of transmission gratings here.
