Current and Upcoming Astronomy ProjectsMaterion is currently manufacturing a five filter set for microlensing science observation in the southern hemisphere which will be installed in Chile in 2014, but owned and managed by the Korean Astronomy Science Institute. In early 2014, Materion is expecting a number of challenging projects for the LAO Lab. Among them are telescope imager upgrades for current astronomy customers and coating work for new spectrograph instruments. Materion also has plans for developing and demonstrating other types of filters, including dichroic beamsplitters, enhanced mirrors and notch filters.
