Mirror Lab and Optics Tours

October 1, 2016 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

We will split into two smaller groups. From 1-2, half of us will go to the Mirror Lab, and half of us will receive tours of the College of Optical Sciences, getting a chance to see labs within the building.

The mirror lab tour is of the Richard F. Caris Mirror lab, where the largest mirrors in the world are created. This guided tour will give students a behind the scenes look at how 8.4 meter mirrors are made with such incredible precision, mirrors for telescopes such as the Large Binocular Telescope, the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, and the Giant Magellan Telescope. For more information, see the mirror lab’s website.
