- diffraction gratings prototypes for the infrared telescope (IRT) of the ESA THESEUS
- characterization of the surface form error (before and after gluing in its mount) of the 2-zone off-axis parabola of the SPIROU instrument of CFHT (IRAP project)
- measurement of the depth of coronagph phase masks for OCA
