Laboratories and workshops at the CD6

There are three types of laboratories and workshops at the CD6.

1.- Workshops. Our mechanics and electronics workshops, which have a total surface area of 110 m2, feature state-of-the-art equipment used in designing and developing the projects carried out at the Centre. Our mechanics workshop has machine tools and measuring instruments that can be used for all sorts of work. Our electronics workshop has tools used to develop various types of 8- and 16-bit microcontrollers. It also has tools for developing programmable logic devices such as CPLDs and FPGAs.

2.- Prototype room. This 60-m2 space is used for integrating, adjusting and testing the devices designed and built at the Centre. It is located next to the workshops and holds all of the equipment required for full operation.

3.- Design and development laboratories. The five laboratories, whose total surface area is 310 m2, are used for designing applications, carrying out measurements and performing tests related to the Centre’s main research lines, which are the following:

  • Instrument development.
  • Laser applications.
  • Design and simulation of optical systems.
  • Surface, optical, radiometric, photometric and colour metrology.
