Einstein Telescope for business

How about contributing to development of the Einstein Telescope (ET)? A number of projects and programmes have been set up for companies to encourage innovation and accelerated development of new technologies for the telescope.

Technology domains

The construction and operation of ET will require many advances in research and development and new technological developments. Many of the innovations needed will build on research already conducted at LIGO (United States), VIRGO (Italy), KAGRA (Japan) and other similar facilities. For the actual construction of the Einstein Telescope (in particular the instrumentation), technology domains have been defined that will be further developed through research and innovation.

  • Cryogenics
  • Vacuum technolgy
  • Precision mechanics and mechatronics
  • Sensors
  • Optics and optical metrology
  • Mirror coatings
  • Lasers
  • Advanced control algorithms

Companies involved

Many companies in the Meuse-Rhine Euroregion have already shown their commitment to the Einstein Telescope. Together they form the ET ecosystem.
