Polarimeter assembly

Magic is happening at Uppsala university, where we have now all the optical/mechanical components for the CRIRES+ polarimeter, as well as all the components for the lab: IR camera, monochromator, and IR light sources among other. We are now doing the assembly of the polarimeter, and we will test and characterize it right after to verify we comply with the specification of the instrument.

 

Consortium meeting at Florence observatory

The CRIRES+ consortium met for the first time after the Final Design Review. We discussed the closing of the FDR, and planned the next steps into manufacturing, assembling, and integration of CRIRES+ subsystems.
