Download “8 Reasons Your Interferometer Might Need an Upgrade” Field Guide
"The upgrade took 4 weeks and saved us $30,000. We were able to roll that savings into a radius of curvature update; we now have a new system with increased capability and came in under budget."
The optics last nearly forever but the electronics’ and software’s half-life is about five years. After five years your production is at increasing risk. You send the system to us and we return it, in many cases, working better than new.
An upgrade is like a new interferometer, a second life
At times repairs are needed. Motors fail, stages are stuck, zoom optics frozen, or a beam splitter is debonding. With your approval, we will make the necessary repairs.
Fix those annoying problems that limit its usefulness
Often interferometers are abandoned by their manufacturer. ÄPRE electronics and software adapt to even 40 year-old systems. You might be surprised at what can be done.
