- High Bay facility (40' X 50' in size) with a high hook
height overhead crane and "pickup truck level" loading dock. Currently home to
the InFOCuS hard X-ray focusing optics telescope which is being rebuilt and
tested in preparation for a balloon flight in 2013.
- At the Mirror Laboratory in the ASD X-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory, we research and develop mirror systems for astronomical X-ray telescopes. Thin-foil X-ray optics are pioneered and developed in the laboratory. These X-ray mirrors provide light-weight, broad band and low cost telescopes for astronomical X-ray imaging.
