ESO ELT: Surfaces to discover the secrets of the universe!

Situated at 3 km altitude in the Chilean Atacama desert, the ESO ELT (Extremely Large Telescope) will be an outstanding engineering accomplishment. For this astonishing instrument, IPU has developed a process and automation concept for a safe chemical process to strip the mirror coating during planned maintenance without altering the fragile mirror substrate.
