Event Title

Improving a Program to Test Optics for Space-Based Telescopes

Location

Room # EB302

Start Date

Description

Current broadband multilayer mirrors used in space-based telescopes cannot reflect light in the extreme ultraviolet range. Our research seeks to expand the wavelengths that broadband mirrors can reflect. Our research on these mirrors is conducted using a program called Octopus Measurements, which controls our system of hardware. This program had many design flaws that made it difficult to maintain, so I redesigned it to remediate those flaws.
