We Are The Winners of The Tender For The C75 Cryostat
With great satisfaction, Alca Technology can officially announce that it is the winner of the public tender financed by the Institute of Nuclear Physics section. Rome for the "Design and construction of the C75 cryostat for testing the mechanical and cryogenic characteristics of cryogenic payloads in a 1:1 scale for ET".
ET (Einstein Telescope) will be an innovative next-generation underground interferometer that will act as a ground-based observatory for gravitational waves.
Triangular in shape with 10 km long arms, it will use extremely enhanced technologies compared to those implemented in current detectors, in the fields of photonics, optics, precision mechanics, electronics, cryogenics, materials science and advanced computing . It will be able to detect gravitational signals with such sensitivity that it will be able to explore a much larger portion of the universe than current experiments. This will allow, for example, to study populations of black holes, to observe new astrophysical phenomena for the first time, to investigate the cosmological model that describes the evolution of the universe, to contribute to understanding the nature of dark matter.
The complete cryostat, measuring 3 meters in diameter by 4 meters high, will have to be designed, built and tested in less than 20 months.
Truly a great challenge for our team!
