Let There Be Light: Designing Popmintchev LABS at UCSD
By Thomas Clark for LAB MANAGER
The challenges of designing a cleanroom facility that meets strict environmental isolation requirements.
At Popmintchev LABS, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci work cooperatively to stretch the boundaries of existing X-ray science. While Michelangelo focuses on improving existing X-ray technology through the “sculptures” created by 5D imaging, Leonardo uses ultrafast light beams to research and expand the capabilities of X-rays with laser properties.
Michelangelo and Leonardo are two “tabletop” laser and X-ray systems located on the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) campus, where Popmintchev LABS is working to revolutionize X-ray science using equipment that is much smaller and less expensive to operate than the massive machinery found in research facilities doing similar work.
