IR Labs Designs, Constructs, and Tests Dewar for SHARK-NIR
At the heart of the Large Binocular Telescope is the pair of SHARK-NIR instruments which will used used together to observe exoplanets. Our engineering team worked closely with INAF-Padova and Steward Observatory to design, produce and test a customized dewar that met unique specifications of the SHARK-NIR.
IR Labs Rebuilds IR Telescope Camera with New H1RG Detector for Kagoshima University
When lightning struck Kagoshima University’s 1-meter infrared telescope, we worked with the university to inspect and evaluate the damage and to propose for a cost-effective way to rebuild the camera system with a new Teledyne H1RG detector while using the undamaged optics, mechanical cooler, and vacuum enclosure.

Why Select a Cryogen-free Refrigerator?
When considering specifications for a cryostat, you will probably focus on size and operating temperature, but other criteria are just as important: Access to cryogens Frequency of use Physical location of [...]
Custom GM Cryostat System Designed for FPA Characterization
The purpose of the project was to design and produce a cryostat to simultaneously characterize four MCT focal plane arrays that will be used in the NEO Surveyor, a space-based IR telescope to survey the solar system for near-earth objects.
