In this beautiful new location, we have realized the space needed to perform full mass production on X-ray optics. The clean rooms cover an area of over 300 m2.
Within these cleanrooms, cosine develops techniques for quality control such as fringe reflection techniques, interferometric analysis, and laser scanning. A significant amount of robotics is present, which performs all handling of the stacks, from grabbing them to stacking them, and to discarding plates that are not of sufficient quality. All robotics are unique and designed in house.
Aside from the cleanroom spaces there are optical and electronic integration spaces for other components, and a full development capability for measurement systems outside of the high energy range such as hyperspectral, thermal, and altimetric instruments, which are available through cosine measurement systems (for more information see cosine.nl).
Availability of significant optical table space allows for many setups and technologies to be developed concurrently.
