Le Verre Fluoré projects:
IR fiber technology, helping to understand the Universe


Since 1985, Le Verre Fluoré has been involved in the most innovative astronomical projects, which require working to the most rigorous specifications for mid-IR transmission. Le Verre Fluoré is proud to be contributing to the understanding of the Universe through the provision of its MID IR fiber  technology.

Projects involving Le Verre Fluoré MID IR fiber technology include AVIRIS (Airborne Visible InfraRed Imaging Spectrometer), FLUOR (Fiber Linked Unit for Optical Recombination), OHANA (Optical Hawaiian Array for Nanoradian Astronomy), GRAVITY (second-generation very large telescope instrument for precision narrow-angle astrometry and interferometric imaging), ExoMars (Exobiology on Mars), and SPIRou (Near-Infrared Spectropolarimeter for the 3.6 m Canada France Hawaii Telescope).
