Etalon is proud to be a member of an international consortium that was formed to build the metrology for the next generation of linear collider CLIC. The technical goal of the program “PACMAN” is to develop high accuracy metrology and alignment tools and integrate them in a single automatic test stand. Etalons innovative Absolute Multiline Technology will play an important role to achieve the extremely high challenges: two almost 50 km long accelerators will accelerate electrons and positrons and collide them at a nominal energy of 3TeV. The alignment of components shall reach unprecedented small values at the nanometer and micrometer level. During the cooperation, young researchers from CERN will also work with the Etalon team in Braunschweig.
