DSPE Knowledge Day about ‘Engineering for Cryogenics

Cryogenic mechanisms for the Extremely Large Telescope.


About this event

Please be invited to the upcoming DSPE Knowledge Day: Engineering for Cryogenics, which will be held on the 2nd of November at ASTRON Dwingeloo, Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy. We are hosted by the NOVA Optical-Infrared group, who develop opto-mechanical cryogenic systems for astronomy.

This is an excellent opportunity for professionals in the cryogenics and engineering industry to come together and share their knowledge, experience, and research findings.

This DSPE Knowledge Day will feature keynote speakers and a tour around the ASTRON facilities in Dwingeloo. This is also a unique opportunity to visit this loaction. We are confident that this congress will offer a platform for attendees to learn from experts in the field and engage in discussions on the latest trends and developments in cryogenics.

ASTRON’s main mission is to make discoveries in radio astronomy happen, via the development of new and innovative technologies, the operation of world-class radio astronomy facilities, and the pursuit of fundamental astronomical research. Engineers and astronomers at ASTRON have an outstanding international reputation for novel technology development, and fundamental research in galactic and extra-galactic astronomy.

ASTRON’s programme has three principal elements:

  • The operation of front line observing facilities, including especially the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope and LOFAR,
  • The pursuit of fundamental astronomical research using ASTRON facilities, together with a broad range of other telescopes around the world and space-borne instruments (e.g. Spitzer, HST etc.)
  • A strong technology development programme, encompassing both innovative instrumentation for existing telescopes and the new technologies needed for future facilities.

In addition, ASTRON is active in the international science policy arena and is one of the leaders in the international SKA project. The Square Kilometre Array will be the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope with a total collecting area of approximately one square kilometre. The SKA will be built in Southern Africa and in Australia. It is a global enterprise bringing together 11 countries from the 5 continents.
