Test and Measurement Capabilities

Andover has the ability to perform a wide variety of testing and measurements to ensure compiance with all apllicable customer specifications, as well as military and aerospace standards. Our testing capabilities are extensive, including both automated spectrophotometers for broadband spectral measurements, and ultra-high-resolution spectrophotometers for narrowband measurements. Our optical metrology lab features a custom-designed, computer-controlled tunable interferometer to measure transmitted wavefronts beyond the capabilities of a traditional laser interferometer.
