Engineers and technicians working on the James Webb Space Telescope successfully completed the first important optical measurement of Webb’s fully assembled primary mirror, called a Center of Curvature test.
NexOptic Technology Corp. ("NexOptic") and Spectrum Optix Inc. of Calgary, Canada ("Spectrum,") and together with NexOptic, the "Companies") are pleased to report the release of their proof-of-concept prototype ("POC") video rendering presentation.
The longest-running, high-resolution observations of the moon's thermal emission confirm that Jupiter's moon, Io, is the most volcanically active body in our solar system.
It is a well-established fact that larger light-collecting mirrors will be required by scientists to resolve smaller physical details of faraway celestial objects. However this challenge is not simple to overcome due to the high cost and difficulty of building and launching large-aperture telescopes – in this particular scenario, space observatories.
Finding and characterizing dozens of Earth-like planets will require a super-stable space telescope whose optical components move or distort no more than a few picometers — a measurement smaller than the size of an atom. It also will require next-generation tools with which to assure that level of stability.
NexOptic Technology Corp. and Spectrum Optix Inc. are pleased to announce that Spectrum has completed orders for all optical elements required to build the lens stack for their proof of concept prototype.
The angular resolution of a telescope is the smallest angle between two objects that still can be resolved as separate things; in a telescope with high angular resolution, those objects can be very close together and yet still appear distinct.
Last week, a team of Australian researchers successfully completed ‘Astronomical Verification’ of a critical sub-system of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA)—the forthcoming radio telescope that will be the largest and most sensitive on Earth.
The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) has awarded AOA Xinetics, a Northrop Grumman Corporation company, funding to continue supporting the telescope's Narrow Field Infrared Adaptive Optics System.
