cosine at HEAD 21

cosine will be participating in the 21st Meeting of the High Energy astrophysics Division of the AAS (HEAD 21), taking place in Horseshoe Bay, Texas, from 7 to 12 April 2024. Dr Barrière, Senior Scientist-Engineer at cosine, will be present at the cosine booth. Join us to discuss high-energy astronomy, and to learn more about cosine’s work in developing high-energy optics ranging from soft X-rays to soft gamma-rays, for our customers.

The HEAD 21 meeting gathers experts in astrophysics, providing a platform to discuss recent discoveries as well as future plans, in particular concerning future X-ray astronomy missions. These missions require the development of innovative technologies, and the HEAD21 meeting is the perfect place to elaborate mission concepts, connecting the scientific requirements to the possibilities offered by current and near-future technologies.

cosine’s High Energy Optics business unit is a world leader in the development and delivery of X- and gamma-ray optics and systems, including X-ray diffraction and imaging spectroscopy. We combine and apply knowledge about semiconductor processes, silicon, glass micro-pore optics technology and mass production to develop and produce lightweight, high-resolution high-energy optics. With our expertise in X- and gamma-ray technologies, we can address your imaging, focusing, modeling, and analysis challenges.

We look forward to engaging with industry and academic partners to discuss the future need for high-energy astronomy missions and applications.
