MIDDLEFIELD, Conn., March 4 -- Zygo Corp. has received a contract award for 94 precision optomechanical assemblies from the University of California Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The transport spatial filter diagnostic tower platform assemblies will be installed in the National Ignition Facility (NIF), the world's largest laser system, being constructed at LLNL for the study of nuclear weapons physics and energy production by controlled thermonuclear fusion.
The contract has a potential value of $8.6 million over several years. Zygo said work will be performed at its optical assembly center in Tucson, Ariz., and optical components will be supplied by its Middlefield facility.
Earlier this year, ZYGO was awarded a contract for 192 vacuum relay telescopes with a potential value of $7.66 million.
