AGC Plasma builds coater plant for the world’s largest telescope

AGC Glass Europe SA, through its business unit AGC Plasma Technology Solutions, has passed the factory acceptance test (FAT) of the coating plant that will apply the reflective coating on the mirror segments of the 39-meter M1 primary mirror of the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) currently under construction by the European Southern Observatory (ESO).


Are you looking for a solution to control coating thickness uniformity over large scale areas during the coating process?

Applications requiring superior coating uniformity over large areas can benefit substantially from the use of AGC’s Online Shimmable Magnet Bar (iOSMB) technology.
