Dark Tunnel

Dark Tunnel

Our Dark Tunnel facility provides a large area (100 m x 40 m x 9 m) for undertaking trials and assessments. The lighting system within the Tunnel provides a repeatable environment for low-light testing across the whole area using multiple set levels of illumination, from twilight (approx. 10 lux) to extreme overcast starlight (approx. 50 microlux).

Adjacent to this large test space are multiple optical laboratories which can be used alongside this facility, or separately, as required. We have a wide range of specialist equipment including emission sources (blackbodies, lamps, lasers), optical components (lenses, filters, mounts, fibres), light and power meters, photodetectors and cameras covering mulitple wavebands.
