Case Study: Specialized Thin Film Optical Mirrors Enable VIRUS Spectrograph System in Dark Energy Ex

PG&O designed and delivered specialized optical mirrors to Texas A&M University and the University of Texas at Austin for use in building the first-of-its-kind VIRUS (Visible Integral-field Replicable Unit Spectrograph) instrument, a key part of the Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy Experiment, or HETDEX. The $36M international research project will study the force that causes the expansion of the universe to speed up, rather than slow down.
