Optique XUV


We develop original ideas for handling and using XUV radiation whose wavelength can vary from 100 nm to 0.1 nm. Areas as diverse as solar imaging or attosecond physics use this XUV radiation and require the development of optical components and systems at the limits of technological and metrological know-how. Our activities revolve around the following lines of research:

  • Material study, design and manufacture of coatings
  • Design and realization of advanced optical systems
  • Digital processing for attosecond metrology

Thanks to close-up images of the Sun obtained during Solar Orbiter’s perihelion passage of October 2022, solar physicists have seen how fleeting magnetic fields at the solar surface build up into the solar atmosphere.
