CWS successfully integrated into ISLiD

Another milestone in the hardware phase of Sunrise achieved!

February 23, 2021

The Correlation Tracker and Wavefront Sensor (CWS), built by the Leibniz-Institut für Sonnenphysik (KIS, Freiburg Germany) was successfully integrated into ISLiD. Laboratory measurements indicate the excellent performance of the system, which will measure and correct residual image motions during the flight and deliver diffraction limited and stable images to the scientific instruemnts.

The CWS (under the podest-shaped aluminum plate at the top), mounted within the carbon fiber side plates of ISLiD (MPS cleanroom, Feb-23 2021).
