Optical Detectors

Our team forms a department in ESO's Instrumentation Division and is in charge of developing, installing and monitoring the optical detector systems for ESO's La Silla Paranal Observatory in Chile. It also contributes the detector systems to instruments built by ESO external consortia. The cryostats we use are supplied by the Integration and Cryo-vacuum Department of the Instrumentation Division. Infrared detector systems are the responsibility of the Infrared Detector Department.
