Wakefield Accelerator optics reflectivity restored!

ibss has successfully restored mirrors and gratings used in laser experiments. These experiments range from elementary laser table apps to advanced techniques where laser light is used in tandem with plasma to create synchrotron energies 100-1000 times.

Optics are used extensively to achieve these energy concentrations and accumulate hydrocarbon depositions, reducing reflectivity and beam intensity over time.

Contaminated gratings are generally replaced with new ones that cost anywhere from $25K to $1 million, depending on size and materials. UTA has documented that using the GV10x successfully removed HC contamination from 20 and 30-year-old gratings with 69% reflectivity and restored their reflectivity to 88%.
