More VISTA: 4MOST WFC and ADC

We have proudly commenced the 4MOST Optical Lens Fabrication Wide Field Corrector and Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector project.

This project summarises the capability we have in our team covering development, design, analysis, procurement, fabrication of six lenses including one aspheric lens, polishing, assembly into two doublets, testing, and delivery of the optical lenses. Along with the 4MOST High-Resolution Camera project, the Wide Field Corrector is a key component to the spectrograph that forms part of the beautiful VISTA telescope in Chile. Our proven skill and ability producing the large lenses for the William Herschel Telescope, gave 4MOST the confidence to use us as one of the few global leaders in precision optics for astronomy.
