The SuperCam calibration target (SCCT) carries a complex set of standards for imaging calibration, mineral identification and chemometric calculations or spectral references to calibrate and evaluate the health of the instrument basic.
Monitoring of JUICE Optical Fibers During Thermal Cycles Keeping the Optical Connectors at Different Stable Cryogenic Temperatures in 3-Chambers Setup
Two types of multimode fibers (50µm and 400µm) will be used for the scalar sensor of the JUICE (Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer program) magnetometer. This optical sensor will be placed at the end of a boom. These multimode fibers will transmit modulated laser light through the sensor, the light source, and the detector electronics being located within the spaceship.
Space qualified silicon carbide power diodes developed by CNM-CSIC in collaboration with ALTER TECHNOLOGY will be handled as ALTER TECHNOLOGY specific product for high reliability and harsh environment-related markets.
Alter Technology as reference test house
Screening of a high number of devices under very harsh conditions: Custom testing setup
High Temperature: 270ºC
Low temp: -170ºC
High Voltage tests: 250V
High Power tests: 2.5A
Long lasting tests with constant monitoring of electrical parameters and temperature of each single diode.
Optical fibers are delicate elements that can break easily, and their repair is not as simple as an electric wire. The optical fibers suffer great stress in the outdoor installations due to weather conditions and the installation itself.
