Data handling for the production of the NewAthena optics

On demand | Presented live 17 June 2024

Abstract

Silicon Pore Optics is the optic technology selected for the production of the hundreds of mirror modules that will comprise the European Space Agency’s NewAthena X-ray mirror assembly. Each mirror module starts from pristine silicon wafers that are taken through many physical, mechanical and chemical steps to produce the about 160 individual mirror plates that are needed for its construction. At each step in the production chain, data are used to tune the details of each process, and new data are collected to assess the quality of the output. In this paper we describe how the different pieces of data that become available during the production of the optics are brought together in a system of data bases and software pipelines that is meant to serve both the scientific and the production quality needs associated with such a large effort. A few examples will be described to illustrate the current status of these efforts.
