Diffusil® is space approved
The “Scanning Habitable Environments with Raman & Luminescence for Organics & Chemicals” has a nickname: SHERLOC
This scientific instrument is mounted on the robot arm of the rover “Perseverance” and will use spectrometers, a laser and a camera to search for organic substances and minerals on Mars.
SHERLOC is designed, among other things, to find possible signs of earlier microbial life on Mars.
Also included are optical calibration targets made of our Diffusil®-UV mounted on the rover.
In extensive tests at NASA, Diffusil®-UV has proved to be long-term stable even under the rough conditions of space. Thus IQS was once again able to prove the high quality of its fused silica materials.
