Since 2011, SEIV has been in charge of running the Sol-Gel building for treating LMJ lenses. The building is located in the LASERIS industrial zone close to the LMJ. Specially designed for industrial production of the Sol-Gel lens treatment, the building is a value-enhancing industrial tool, unique in Europe.
Sol-Gel is a form of anti-reflective treatment for lenses used in the LMJ. This treatment helps to attain essential performance levels in terms of laser flux transmission and behavior. SEIV designed and built the main industrial resources needed by the CEA for carrying out Sol-Gel treatments and finalized and commissioned the industrial manufacturing process.
