Instrumentation Projects



Instrument Lab

ERC Lab: In the fall of 2015 we moved in to a new high performance lab in the lower level 2 of the William Eckhardt Research Center. We are currently prototyping the MAROON-X sub-systems in this space. From left to right in the panorama below one can see a precision alignment station, our Fabry-Perot etalon system, a fiber test station, and a fiber mounting station.

Hinds Lab: We still maintain our original lab in the basement of the Henry Hinds Laboratory for Geophysical Sciences. Currently the lab hosts the environmental control chamber (see picture below) that will house the MAROON-X spectrograph when it is delivered.
